Today's card is for a challenge over at Tuesday Taggers, Buttons and Bows. I have to own up and say that I follow the blog site and keep an eye on the challenges but so far have only entered a couple!!! I'm bad, cos it's over in the UK which is where I'm from and I love to keep up with all that's happening there in papercraft.
So Pink and Grey were my colour choices, to fit in with a colour challenge this week at Stamp TV.
STAMPS: GKD Elegant Post by Nina Brackett, Heart swirl by Art Stamps Australia
PAPERS: GKD Heavy weight PL in pure white, Grey Bazzill, DP Basic Grey Bittersweet card pad and Heidi Grace- Oh so loved (stripe).
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black and SU pretty in Pink.
EMBELLISHMENT: Three heart buttons, Pink Grosgrain ribbon and two tiny pearls on the butterfly that was punched with a Martha Stewart Punch.
I used a Nestibility oval die to cut the grey bazzill then punched the side with a SU lace punch. The ribbon was added to the spine side before attaching to the white card base 1cm forward of the fold.
The pink dp was added to the inside of the card before stamping the basket of flowers. I've used the base of the Elegant post and stamped it (upside down) for the basket to sit on. No colouring of this image - if you look closely it's such a detailed stamp I think I get away with leaving it on this pink DP. The striped dp was also punched with the lace punch and added beneath the post.
To finish I added the punched butterfly which has the two small pearls attached and then the three small heart buttons.
That's it for Buttons and Bows - hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
Till next time.......
