Hello again. Another post for me? Wow! Two posts in two days....I must be on a roll! lol Anyway, I have a card for Mo's challenge this week which is Buttons and Bows. I used a great image called Strawberry Girl. She is so cute. She's enjoying the spring air I think (I know I am, the weather where I am is amazing today!)
I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils. I picked my color scheme to go with the challenge at Truly Scrumptious this time which is lilac, lemon and cream. And it goes well with what the ladies at Pixie Cottage want this week which is pastel colors (I think I achieved that). I also used their great sketch.
I'm so glad that Mother's Day in the UK comes before Mother's Day in America because I now have a card ready well in advance! YAY!! Some challenges are looking for Spring also. I think this image and the colors are very springy.
I added some buttons in a different sort of way. I used seam binding from Wild Orchid for my bow. I have a lot of tiny baby buttons in my stash. I glued them to the ribbon, but I also threaded them on some wire cut from the flowers and stuck them in behind the flowers. It's a little different, but I like it. I may use them again.
The inside is a little plainer than I have been doing lately. I felt a little uninspired I guess. But it does look pretty good I guess. Oh, and the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room is Spring and Dry Embossing. It's hard to see in the picture but the lemon colored paper is embossed with flowers.
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
