Cute Card Thursday 'Buttons + Bows' Challenge
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is to use buttons and bows on your card. I have coloured this fab image which Dawny P sent to me with Pro Markers and a Sakura clear stardust pen (the pic doesn't show all the shimmer). The fibres have been tied in a knot (halfway to a bow!!) and the scrummy papers are from Cosmo Cricket and I have stamped Basic Grey swirls over the spotty paper.
Deb is having a blogging break until the New Year so I'll continue to run CCT but on my own. It has been great fun running the challenges with Deb and I hope she will be back with us soon.



















Supplies
Stamps: Sugar Nellie Santa, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Tools: Pro Markers, Sakura Stardust, Glossy Accents,Basic Grey Fibres, Buttons
DP: Cosmo Cricket

That really is a fab image & the papers you have chosen work very well with it. Very nice card I feel very excited about the festive season as we have good things lined up at work but to be honest it often feels like Xmas all week long because we all have a good laugh during the day.
