Simon Says Challenge

Wow! We had some wonderful entries for "Things with Wings".  Thank you all for participating!

This week our challenge at Simon Says is "Buttons, Bows, and Bling".  The DT are all using a Greeting Farm image, so if you would like we would love to see those also.

I used the cutie Lottie!  Oh, I think she is super, duper, cute.  I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, so I will be entering it there.

Card Ingredients:

Paper: Graphic 45, Baby and Bride Collection
Inks:  Distressed Inks
Tools:  Bow Maker, Sewing Machine, MS Branch punch
Embellies: Magnolia Flower, Prima Flowers, ribbon, Rhinestones

Now this little "button" was made using the tutorial on the Whiff of Joy Blog here.  Very simple and such a great idea.  I will be using it over and over.

The wonderful rhinestones were given to me with my order from Simon Says Stamp recently.  They are soooo pretty! Love them!!

Be sure to go have a look at all the super cute stuff the other DT have done. You will definitely find inspiration!!!

Thank you for taking the time to stop and leave a comment.  I so appreciate it!!!!

Hugs, Dena
