buttons

My card today fits in with two challenges.

As soon as I saw the sketch at CPS I knew that I would use it for my next card.

I am also entering the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar where the theme is 'buttons'.

I used the same papers as I had used on my previous card, from the Crate Paper ~ Sweet Branch collection. However this time I put more emphasis on the green and picked up on the blue, purple and brown.

Here is my card:

I used green bazzil cardstock for matting and stitched the layers by machine with dark brown thread to provide a contrast.

For the horizontal band, I stitched a piece of ribbon to the card and sewed on some buttons by hand in co-ordinating colours to match the colours in the patterned card.

The image is a Gorjuss Girl with her cat and I coloured her with my copics.

Flowers are a mixture from my stash and I finished the centre with a sugar coated brad.
Thank you for looking and any comments you might leave.
