DT post for Creative Inspirations: Buttons and Bows

Hi there! Happy Wednesday to you! Hope you're having a good one - I'm running again today and then later on I've got Rainbows - most importantly though I've got to set my broad bean seeds and tomato seeds. Exciting stuff!!!

At Creative Inspirations today there's a new challenge starting - its called 'Buttons and Bows'.

This week's prize is from  CRAFTY RIBBONS which is a BUNDLE OF RIBBONS!

We also have a 2nd prize from our Monthly Sponsor J&C CREATIONS which is also a £10 GIFT CERTIFICATE!

Here's the card I've made - its using an image from Crafters Companion that was released earlier this month - I think she's just beautiful.

The image had been coloured with promarkers and I used tumbled glass DI around the edges of the spellbinder die. The papers came from Bunny Zoe Crafts but I can't recall the manufacturer - sorry. The roses are tiny ones from WOC and the buttons and ribbon are from my stash.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafters Companion challenge crafterscompanion: Love is in the air
Papercrafting Journeypaper-craftingjourney: Bingo - sentiment, buttons and flowers
CC and CCchocolatecoffeecards: Buttons and Bows
Cardmaniacardmaniachallenges: Fairies or butterflies
Bearly Minebearlymine-challenges: Anything goes

Thanks for dropping by today and I hope you have a great one! Big Hugs
