getting sticky

Today I have been getting sticky in the Sugar Bowl where they have a fabulous sketch for this week's challenge:

The additional ingredient to the challenge is to use buttons.

For my card I used papers from the Crate Paper ~ Sweet Branch collection, which I matted and stitched with my sewing machine.

For the three horizontal lines in the sketch, I used sheer white ribbon which I held in place by sewing on a button at each end, in different colours to match the papers. Overall I was trying to accentuate the orange, white and green parts of the papers.

Here is my card:

With the flower decoration, I again kept to the orange white and green theme.
The image is of course a Gorjuss Girl and I coloured her with my copics.
I created the scallop border on each side by layering up inks in graduating shades and then embossing it.

Thank you for looking.
