Buttons and Bows!!

Happy Monday and Happy Week to everyone! I hope you have all had a magnificent weekend and are ready for a splendid week. I am going to ignore our weather forecast for the next several days because they are using the SNOW word along with FREEZING RAIN...and I don't like either of those forecasts!!! When is SPRING really going to arrive...and where is it???? haha

Today is the first day for the new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and the theme for this fortnight is Buttons and Bows!! How fun is that??? And as always you can be assured that there will be a wonderful prize from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop for some lucky participant!! So get your buttons and bows together and come on over and join in with us!!!!
 
 
 
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the Pebbles Family Ties Paper Pad. The darling Bildmalarna My Chicken image was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter for the frill of her dress. I used a blue dotted grosgrain ribbon for the vertical to anchor 5 of the Medium Polka Dot Buttons from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop. I topped each button with a Small Satin Bow. All of the flowers are also from WOC: Carnations, Hip Rosebuds, and Wild Rose. The front of the card was finished with Self-Adhesive Pearls.
 
 
I just had to show you the inside jotting spot!! I used another button and bow along with half of the Bildmalarna Chicks and Hens image...too cute!!!
 
Thank you so very much for dropping by and I hope you will want to come by often. Remember that if you scroll down I have several SWEET STUFFs which are open until Tuesday at midnight, including my Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF and a couple of Whimsy SWEET STUFFs!! Have a wonderful week, and until the next time, I send BIG HUGS!!!

Hvor kært, de knapper med små sløjfer er så søde, og farverne er fint afstemt til baggrundspapiret og blomster. knus morkaren.

This is one of my all time favorite color combinations and you have used it beautifully. The row of buttons is downright fun and the design paper is just sweet. You image, of course as usual, is colored perfectly.

This is such a sweet card and I am glad you showed how you finished off the inside! Such teeny tiny bows. We got up to a lightly frosted world outside this morning. It is still snowing very hard and we have almost two inches already even though we are only in the "1 to 2" inch region of the forecast, and that was supposed to be through tomorrow! The roads were clear and they still had school, so it wasn't too bad but I am waiting for them to call school off!

Sonia said...

Hi Jacque!

This card is absolutely adorable! I love the button and bows on a ribbon! I've never seen that before! I love this image, that little girl with the flower wreath in her blonde hair. The little duck and bear are colored beautifully, Jacque! And that spring arrangement of flowers, I love the choices you made!

If I don't write again soon...computer problems on both computers...I pray you have a wonderful weekend rejoicing in the Victory of the Risen Lord!

His,
Traci Starkweather
