IAAS Buttons and Bows
This theme is 'Buttons and Bows' over at International Art and Soul so please come across and join us.
I used a Craft UK 8x8 scalloped card blank. The Papermill pink card was embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder and the corners were rounded with a Carl punch. I matted it on to Papermill yellow card that also had its corners rounded. The yellow ribbon was bought in America about four years ago and it's the first time I've used it. My family couldn't believe how many rolls of ribbon I bought there, animal print, jewelled, satin, dotted, striped, you name it I bought it. So far I've used one strip of jewelled and this strip of satin. After wrapping the ribbon round the lower edge of the mat I stamped the Visible Image quotes on three separate pieces of coloured card, cutting the corners as before and added them to the upper part of the card with a Craft Box gem at the top corner of each. I raided my button box and added a few buttons to some of the embossed buttons.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + a sentiment
Creative Knockouts - Thankful Thoughts
Through the Purple Haze - Lace/Ribbon
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes
