Good morning! Not long til weekend! I can't wait for it! And then I have the whole next week off so I can relax. Yay! :D I'm planning on making another mini album and do some blog hopping. I definitely won't do anything stressfull, I want to relax and enjoy my free time.
Today I want to show you a card that I made for the current challenge at Crafty ribbons blog. The theme is "button up" so we want to see some buttons on your cards/projects. I don't often use buttons on my creations, so this was quite a challenge for me. At the end I made this card ...
I keep thinking there's something missing, but I don't know what. I tried adding some more pearls, gems etc., but nothing worked, so at the end I just left it like this. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears. For this card I used Provo Craft design papers. The butterflies were cut from Artsy collage's Nature collage kit. It's hard to see in the picture, but I dovered the butterflies with glitters. I also used glitter glue on the flower and on the blue paper. The flower is a TH die. It was cut from a white cardstock and I used some TH distress inks on it. The buttons and ribbons are from Crafty ribbons - I used knit buttons which you can find here, gingham ribbon which you can find here and grosgrain ribbon that you can find here.
