I struggle using buttons on my crafting but I quite like how this card turned out. :) The Design Team have all come up with some wonderful creations & great inspiration.

I have used Basic Grey Bittersweet paper for the background. The image is from Funky Kits & I have used Copic pens for colouring. The flowers, buttons, pink aida & doily are from my craft box.

This challenge last for two weeks & we have a fabulous sponsor for March Crafty Ribbons. Hope you can join us! Thanks for looking. Have a great week. Gez.xx
