Buttons and Bows - Challenge #19

Well, here we are again, it's time for another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie's! This week our amazing Andrea has challenged us to use Buttons and Bows on our cards. Not too hard, right?!! After last week's challenge, I'm ready for something a little less stressful. I did keep this one quite simple after sorting out 3 different matching papers. I just found I liked it better this way. Guess I'm a simple sorta person.
I used Whisper White for the card base. I coloured Clara with my Copics on Neenah White cardstock, cut her out with my circle Nesties, then matted her onto a pink Pinking Nesties Circle. I used some patterned paper from my stash and matted it onto the same pink, which was then matted onto the white card base. I found 3 cute heart buttons in my stash and threaded them with some green narrow satin ribbon. I then put some pink organdy ribbon across the bottom with a bow on it, then I punched out the sentiment with my window punch.
I'm also going to give you a little heads up about something very exciting that is going to start next week. Shhhh, I can't say any more, but if you go to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog, you will find a little more info there. We Krafty Girls don't keep secrets very well!!
Now let's see your creations with buttons and bows, use up some of that ribbon you have stashed away, you know you wanna. And all those buttons you are collecting, go crazy!!
Have a wonderful weekend,
