Buttons and Bows-FOSTV

 The FOSTV challenge this week is Buttons and Bows.  I added glossy accents to my Marianne Creatables Tags and Buttons to give them a 'real' look. Then, added the brown and white gingham bow for a finishing touch.

I'm using a Mark's Finest Papers Pussy Willows stamp set for the image and the sentiment is from
MFP Flaps My Wattles.

Paper: MFP Old World Gold, white cardstock, unknown matching designer paper
Ink: Memento Potter's Clay

My sketch is from Splitcoaststampers, SC239.


We would love for you to join our challenge this week. We will be giving away this fabulous set from Mark's Finest Papers called Daffodil Greetings. So, just make a card for the mentioned challenge and link up. Maybe you'll be the winner.


I'm entering my card into the Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge to use buttons.
Also, Simon Says Stamp has an Anything Goes challenge.

What an incredibly cute card! I love how you used this dsp in such a simple design, and then stamped the bird directly on the dsp! I might have to CASE this design :)

Ellen said...

Great use of patterned paper Benz! I never think to stamp to directly on dp. Your bird is just as sweet as can be! Love the gingham bow to finish it off!

What a fun mix of papers and elements - love that bird image and the ribbon. Your cards are always such a treat!!

Hope you didn't have bad weather yesterday - we had a pretty bad quick storm in the morning where the rain was coming in sideways and the trees looked like they were going to snap. At least it cooled things off a bit.

Hugz!

Gorgeous Brenda! Fabulous colors and papers. I love how you stamped that adorable chickadee on patterned paper. I'd never have guessed those buttons weren't real.

Did you have to start building an ark? We got a bunch of rain along with some great lightning shows ending with some big claps of thunder.
