Buttons and Bows

Goodmorning(ish) my crafty pals. Thank you all for visiting my blog and leaving lovely messages so I know I have company. Well I’m freshly shorn, of course if I had waited until the end of the month I could have posed as a werewolf (tut tut no forward planning). I am back to playing with layers and pinky shades, all my buttons are wooden and a bit heavy for what I wanted here so I had to make some – of course they wouldn’t survive a wash (hee hee). I must keep an eye open for some when I go to the Sincerely Yours show at Taunton in a couple of weeks. I haven’t even started my shopping list.

Back to my card, I printed some backing and pierced two edges, this is the first time I have tried this piercing as previously I have just done a little piece that a die gives. Well here goes and I always welcome any suggestions as well as comments. 

Paper and card - card blank is an 8 inch square,
  the die cut paper is from meadow lark 6x6,
the small squares of card is co-ordination.
Dies used – Spellbinders squares and beaded squares,
and Whimsy kite.
I am entering this into :- In the Pink - Buttons and Bows - Challenge #6
