Hi, back again with details of a new challenge beginning at Get Creative Challenge.

Challenge 58 has a theme of

'Must Use Buttons & Bows.

We have three sponsors for this challenge

I have used a digi stamp from Sheepski Designs called 'Rachel'

I started by taking the image into my serif craft artist and removed the white from the hat replacing it with a material from a digi kit which has knitted materials within it.

I then printed out the image and coloured the rest of her in with my copic marker pens.  I then fussy cut her out using my BSC on the 'direct to cut' with a 0.4mm border.

I made the basket weave background using a weaving die from creative expressions and also made a small frame again using dies from creative expressions, one of the shadow box collection - lattice frames.

The embossing folder is actually a button 8x8 folder from crafters companion and the bow is another die cut from creative expressions

I finished off my card with some buttons sporadically placed within the embossing folder.
