Penny Black Saturday - Buttons & Bows

Good morning everyone,

The challenge at Penny Black Saturday this week is to use buttons and bows. The button is obvious but the bow might not be - the little bit of string in the button is tied in a bow.

Here's what I used to make this card:

Cardstock: SU from "Neutrals" pack
Designer Paper: Papermania "Blueberry Hill"
Stamps: Image and sentiment from Penny Black "Critter Party" set
Colouring Medium: Promarkers for image; Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Tattered Rose" for distressing around DP, image and sentiment
Tools: Nestabilities Labels 4 and Ribbon Tag Trio; Woodware leaf punch, MM Trimmer, Scor-pal
Other: Woodware buttons, twine from SU, ribbon from Cuddly Buddly

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Please leave me a message if you have the time and then I will know you have been and come and visit you.

Hugs, Clare xx

I'm behind again Clare and I see I've missed some lovely cards. This last one is so pretty with such a cute image. That's a neat little bow.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my post showing my son's pencil portrait. He's pleased as punch with the messages my blogging buddies are leaving.
