Dream Valley Challenge 16 - Buttons!

Good afternoon, all! It's time for another Dream Valley Challenge and this fortnight the theme is - use BUTTONS!

Our sponsors are Digis With Attitude who are offering a $10 voucher for their store. There are also freebies on the site, if you want to try before you buy!

My card features a DWA image, Gardening Tween. These Tweens make me think of those 'Bratz' dolls!! I used a Nestie to cut a hexagon, just for a change, and coloured her with Speccies and then distressed the edges of the hexagon with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.

The bp was free with a magazine: it's 'Vintage Rose' by Craftwork Cards. The flowers were punched with EK Success Retro punches from more paper from the same stack, and the pearlised buttons are from my mother-in-law's old button tin.

The leaves are made with a Woodware punch, the shiny pink ribbon is recycled from a birthday present, the gems are from stash and the sentiment is LotV.

The DT has had a great time with the theme, go on over to see what those inventive lassies have done! I do hope you'll join in this fortnight's challenge!!

I apologise for the faded photo, it was taken on quite a dark afternoon when I had to put the lights on. Typical of this summer, eh?!

Thanks for looking, and have a good week!

luv, Mags x
