Buttons and Bows

** Click here to see my birthday blog candy **

Hello friends.  We have a new challenge for you over on the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog.  This week we are asking you to make a project with buttons and bows.


I used Birthday Bee for my card and colored it with my distress inks.  I added lots of stickles to the bee's wings and the ribbon and bow on the gift.  I cut out my images with nestabilities and used a Martha Stewart punch around the page.  A gingham bow and pink button finished my card.


Here's Melissa's latest release.  You can find all these fabulous images over at Whimsy Stamps.  Please stop by the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog to see the fabulous cards made by the DT.  I hope you can play along in our challenge this week.
