A place where I can show my creative side. I love to be artsy and crafty... Things I enjoy: scrapbooking, making cards, stamping, painting, sewing, playing the piano and singing. I've posted photos of some of my past creations and will continue to post more as I make them. Put your feet up and stay awhile.

Welcome to my post for CropStop's "Buttons and bows" challenge! I LOVE buttons and bows and if you haven't already noticed, I placed my button right in the center of the bow.
Here is a close-up of the button and bow. I love the soft touch that the crinkled hand-dyed seam binding gives.
I used digi paper & digi stamps from My Time Made Easy. After I colored the cupcake with my copics I added a few touches with a shiny silver pen and my Gelly Roll "Clear Star" pen. I left this picture a little darker so you can see the shimmer a little better.
After I cut out the image I sponged around the edges with SU's Pink Pirouette ink. I used SU's Pink Pirouette paper for the backgroud - I first ran it through the CuttleBug swiss dots embossing folder and then cut it out with Spellbinders Doily Motiffs. Afterwards I sponged around the edges with SU's Pretty in Pink ink.
You can see the fun dimensions in the photo below.
I have something kind of funny to tell you... but it's kind of not. I wanted to combine my design team posts from My Time Made Easy and CropStop and make one special card for you. Well... I was dealing with a horrible migraine when I looked up the sketch for MTME (our design team has our own yahoogroup where the sketches are uploaded) and I accidentally printed up the wrong sketch! It was a sketch that we did several months ago. I kept thinking... boy, this sketch sure seems familiar, it must be similar to a previous one. haha! I didn't even think to go back and double-check! So today's sketch is from MTME but is NOT the new sketch that is up today at the site! hehe! I have my card for the MTME challenge for this week almost done and I should have it up later today. Good thing they are so forgiving over there at MTME. ;) The CropStop crew is really great too. I LOVE working on both teams!
