Sentimental Sundays

Hello bloggers

Where has that week gone....  I haven't been well this week, firstly a pesky tummy bug, and then followed by a nasty cold.  I feel on a never ending cycle of feeling rubbish... bring on the spring I say!

Anyway enough feeling sorry for myself - time for craft!!

It is once again challenge time over at Sentimental Sundays.  this time challenge 193 - buttons and bling.  We are kindly sponsored by All dressed up

You may realise these are some of my favourite images if you look through my blog - there are plenty of cute images to chose from, especially if you have a go and win..  Check out their blog as they also have some cute freebies, including the gorgeous ballerina!

Here is my card made with one of their newest images.
The papers are from a Kay Miller digi kit called Cranberry Fusion.  as are the flower embellishments.  I cut them out, shaped and added small buttons.  The image was coloured with promarkers, except her dress which was paper pieced from the backing paper.  The hearts are from my stash.

I want to enter this into:
Crafts Galore Encore Challenge - Add bling
Crafty Hazlenuts Patterned Paper challenge - Anything goes with patterned paper
Sassy Studio Design - stop and smell the flowers
