Buttons or Bows

The theme for the challenge at Whoopsi Daisy this week is Buttons or Bows and I think you can tell which I chose. I'm slowly getting back in to crafting and I can't say that this is one of my better cards, sorry! It's a small Craft UK card blank and the red backing paper is from a QVC scrapbook set that I've had for ages. I matted that on to a sheet of yellow paper from Papermill. The image, from sheet 356 and available here, was coloured with my Promarkers. After cutting by hand (!!) I rounded the corners with my Carl punch and coloured the edges with Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade. The five tiny organza bows are from Create and Craft I think. The three red pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Come along and join in and you could win some of Linnie's lovely digis.

Thanks again for all the lovely messages you left for me.I thought I was doing so well but I've had an awful week and have been absolutely distraught. My apologies if I can't get round to comment on all your beautiful cards.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:

Papelitos Stamps Challenge - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Ribbon Carousel - Beautiful Bows
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
