Simon Says Stamp Challenge - buttons, bows and bling

WOW!! what an amazing amount of entries we had last week, thank you all so much!! This week our challenge at Simon Says Stamp is "buttons, bows and bling" gorgeous combo of embellishments!! This week the DT are showcasing stamps from "The Greetings Farm" so I dusted off this cute Flutter Anya that I've had a year and only used twice! She's so cute isn't she and a joy to colour! If you haven't got a Greetings Farm image you can still enter as long as your stick to the theme! The papers are from the MME Quite Contrary range - soooo gorgeous! I've distressed them with bundled sage distress ink and stickles. I've used the gorgeous sketch at Cute Card Thursday for my card - brilliant sketch, thank you!

I've coloued Anya with copics and added stickles to her wings and skirt.

At last I've got my hands on some of Tim Holtz' gorgeous tickets and how perfect is this one for this image!? I inked the edges with bundled sage distress ink and added some gems from Kaisercraft for some extra sparkle. The ribbon and button are from my stash.

I made the stunning centre flower following Ranita's tutorial on the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog and sprayed it and the small roses with glimmer mist.

Hope you can join us this week at Simon Says Stamp challenge! Thanks for looking! x

Hi Jane
another lovely card. I have just come back from France, so have only just caught up with your blog, and saw the fantastic news that you have been asked to be a permanet D.T. for Whiff Of Joy (although it doesn't surprise me in the least as your cards are beautiful). I may be AWOL for a while as I am off to the hospital after lunch, to have some bone removed from my hand (that will put paid to my crafting for a while lol).
