Morning Everyone,

It is time for another challenge over at As You Like It and for this fortnight we would like you to show us a project featuring your favour of either buttons for ribbon (and don't forget to say why please).

This is my card made with a Stamping Bella image and coloured with copics.   As you can see I've made an easel card for a change, but I had a job taking a decent photo so opted for two to give you a closer look at the image.  My daughter likes to keep her garden looking nice so I thought this image would be ideal for her.

I don't have many buttons and hardly ever use them, but ribbon does feature quite a lot on my cards.  I think it adds a feminine touch and an extra bit of interest when you're struggling with embellishments.  

It seemed to take me ages to make the card, but I'm pleased with how it turned out. I placed a piece of foam tape in the middle as a stopper and hid it with the flowers.  I know the card won't lie flat when closed, but it's going in a box so it won't matter.

The sponsor for the challenge is Crafty Ribbons with a £10 voucher for the lucky winner and if you'd like to pop over here you'll be able to see the lovely inspiration from the rest of the DT.

I've used dies from Go Kreate, Creative Expressions (stitched banners), Magnolia (lace edge) and Simon Says Stamp (Butterfly).  The paper is from First Editions Mulberry Kisses pad and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Brown Sugar Challenge - Include 2 patterned papers
The Sketchy Challenges - Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations - In My Garden
Creatalicious - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar - Totally Girly
Simon Says Stamp Weds - Use a Die/punch

Thank you for visiting and I hope you can find time to leave a comment as I love to read them.

Have a good weekend,

Lynne x
