Whimsy Stamps "Button and Bows" challenge


Happy hump day to you!  Two more days left before the weekend.  Today kicks off another Whimsy Stamp challenge and this time it all about the buttons and bows.  I used the Inspirational Cross 2 designed by Kathryne's Stamp Art Designs.

Here's my creation...

Inspirational Cross 2

I started out with a white cardstock base (thanks Kim's mommy) added SU cardstock and layered dp from Jodie Lee Designs "Nature Garden Collection" 6x6 paper pack.   I also added flourishes and flowers from Wild Orchids flowers.  The ribbon is from Michaels and the button (with Stickles on top) is from Oriental Trading.  I had some bling from my stash so I added that to the cross and flourishes.  I colored my cross using Copics YG61 and YG03.  I edge my card using a white gel pen.

Don't forget! You don't have to use a whimsy image. It would be great if you did though, and it doesn't have to be a card. We welcome all paper projects.

Our Prize this week is...
