Cute As A Button

Good Morning all,
A very happy Sunday to you!
This week at The Crafty Pad, it's "Team A" who are bringing you 
some inspiration for the challenge this week which is
We want to see at least 3 buttons on your project!
Here's my card!

Aha, I see you're saying "That's not a Crafty Pad Designs image!"

"Correct" I say! 

This week we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps & More

They Kindly supplied the Design Team with some images & are offering a prize 
of 5 Digital Stamps Or 4 Digital Stamps & 1 Paper Pack to the winner 
of this weeks Challenge!
I used the sketch from

as the basis for my layout!
I changed the shape & flipped it!

I printed her onto some linen embossed card, I like the texture of this!
I used my Promarkers  to colour her up & I've 
added a few little buttons including a little button nose!

The papers I've used were a freebie from ages ago
I thought they were perfect with this image.
I lightly distressed the edges with a pair of scissors & some ink.
I then layered them with a contrasting plain coloured  paper.
The sentiment was made on my PC using Cutie Pop font 
which you can get here for free!
I also added some pink ribbon & some more of the heart shaped buttons.

I added a punched border which I inked with pink & blue

I decorated the inside of the card just a little!
I'm so glad you managed to stop by!
Don't forget to check out the challenge blog for some more inspiration
from my Team A Teamies!
I hope you find the time to play too!
