Simon Says Buttons, Bow's and Bling :-)

Good Morning :-) Thank you all so much for your lovely entries to our Things With Wings Challenge, we had one of the highest number of entries so a big THANKS !!

The theme on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week is

BUTTONS, BOWS AND BLING :-)

The DT have all used images from The Greeting Farm, you don't have to use them but if you have them we would like to see them :-)

As usual Heidi is giving away one lucky entrant a $25 spree to the Simon Says Stamp Store and Heidi will pay the shipping costs too :-)




I followed Jo's lovely layout on the Sketch Saturtday Challenge and really liked Jo's idea of using a strip of acetate in the middle :-) I used my lovely Cheeky Rockability stamp that was a gift from Heidi ,, isn't she sexy ! I must admit this is my fave Greeting Card stamp ( at the moment, I am prone to changing my mind :-)) I coloured her with copics cut her out and sat her on a Martha Stewart punched Happy Birthday. The paper is from a Basic Grey Sugar Rush paper pad and I thought all the bows on the paper were just perfect for this challenge. I sprayed black card with glimmer mist
and it looks lovely and shimmery IRL :-)
I didn't have a black flower so I used my copic air brush to spray a large one and a rose with black marker. I added a few Robin's Nest Dew Drops and a ribbon and buttton from my stash :-)



The DT have made some gorgeous creations for you to see so pop over to the Challenge Blog to see them :-)

I'm not hiding the fact that I am a HUGE TGF fan, and this happens to be one of my personal favorites! I love the papers you used and the fact that you made her a brunette, because brunettes ROCK! Yes...I may be a bit biased.

Thanks for continuing to inspire us all at Simon Says Stamp!
