Totally Papercrafts DT - Buttons & Bows

Morning All!! Can't believe it's Friday again and that means time for a brand new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts. This week we have a lovely theme of buttons and bows, I really enjoyed this one! I decided to use one of my favourite Mo's images called Lacey with ice cream, she's such a joy to colour.
I've used my brand new Copics for this one together with Magnolia papers which I've had for ages and actually forgot about, how awful is that hehe! I've also used an MS punch around the page. Just for a change I've not used any wild orchid crafts flowers but have used lace and ribbon from them. The wooden flower buttons were a purchase from last year's NEC visit. Can't wait for November 5th when I can go back again woohoo, my yearly treat!!! My card fits in with a few challenges so I'll be entering it into the following :
DP2 Challenge - It's a hop - Rainbow
Digital Tuesday - Ribbon, buttons, bling
Fab 'n Funky - Use a digi image
Pollycraft - Anything goes
Color me copic - Colouring clothes
Hope my card has inspired you to want to join in with our challenge. Please do hop on over to the Totally Papercrafts blog and check out the wonderful inspiration from my ultra talented teamies and enter your own card too. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend. Lotsa luv xxxx
