Hi

Happy Sunday! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

We have a new challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenge. For our #23, this fortnight challenge is a good one and cute as a….BUTTONS….Yup we want to see buttons, big or small, many or one! As long as you have buttons on your card/project we’ll be happy.
And our sponsor this week is Scrapbook Boutique. Please hop over to MDUC and see the cards from the other DT gals and you can read the details of their individual card on their blogs. I hope you will come and join in the challenge--you have 2 whole weeks!!!


For this card, I have used the sketch #24 from Papertake Weekly Challenge.


And at Cupcake Card Challenges, the theme for their challenge #58 ... distressing techniques. Boy, did I do a lot of disressing on this one. The flowers alone... My arm was ready to fall off...LOL.





Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!


Stamp: Magnolia Strawberry Tilda.
DP: Doodlebug Design Plum Bloom, not sure about the dot-embossed cardstock--Bazill probably.
Tools: Stewart border punch, EK Success retro-flower punches (large and medium) .
Misc: Tim Holtz distress ink Dusty Concord.
