Bella with Mum for the TPC


Oohh another Friday already, almost the weekend and time to relax a bit :-)

I have been suffering with horrible hay fever ,, yesterday was dreadful ,, feeling a bit better now but I look like Rudolph ! :-/ ,, not a pretty sight !

Anyway,,, onto nicer things ,,, Friday’s means its the day for a change of theme on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge and this week it is our lovely teamie Anne who chose ,,,

ALL BUTTONED UP …. easy ,,, :-)

We are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl so we have a gorgeous bundle of ribbons and embellies to give away ! :-)

Apologies to Mary and Andrea here,I forgot to check the sponsor when making this card x

I used this very cute Bella with Mum image from the Wild Rose Studio, I coloured with copics , inked the edges with Dusty Concord DI and used star dust stickles for sparkle. The papers are also from the WRS, from the Bella pack and I used a Martha Stewart border punch. I made the buttons using a My Favorite Things Button Quartet die, cutting several from scraps of white card and then used the WRS papers to make the top layer, I then tried to make them look like a bundle of balloons, tied together with twine. The Happy Birthday ‘balloon’ was made using a WRS Little Labels stamp set. I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and made the ribbon slider using the Simple Buckles die.



Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so hop on over to the TPC to see them :-)
