Buttons and Bows
I made this card for the Buttons and Bows challenge at Stamps R Us. For the next two weeks, we are challenging everyone to make cards with a theme of, obviously, buttons and bows. The challenge is being sponsored by KLM Designs, so check it out!
For this card, I really struggled. I don't tend to use a lot of buttons OR bows on any of my cards, so incorporating the two was challenging for me. For whatever reason, this theme screamed baby card for me personally, so I went with that and pulled out a lot of my pastel paper to work off of. This is the first card I've created in a long time that has absolutely no stamping or coloring, but I've had these adorable baby chipboard cutouts for the longest time and I've been dying to use them! I propped the little dress up with foam squares, and then popped up the frame it's on with more foam tape for some dimension. I then added the "buttons and bows" for my embellies and it was history!
Thanks for stopping by!
