DT card - Buttons and Bows

Hello Sweet Stampin' fans and of hello course to anybody else who tunes in here on this bright crisp morning.

I think I am finally getting over my fluey cold, with all its associated nasties.  Three weeks now - and I know of several people including my sister who have been suffering for much longer.

So, this week at Sweet Stampin' our theme is Buttons and Bows.  The prize this week is 6 beautiful pins from Pretty Pin Emebllishments.

My card is a boy's birthday card, so there is a little bit of ribbon, but no bows - I don't think a rugby playing little boy would like bows!




The image is LOTV as is the sentiment from their new range, which I purchased at NEC.  The image is coloured with copics and the background inking is Distress Inks.    This is supposed to be a mucky rugby field.  All the papers are from Basic Grey Oliver, with Bazzill for the dark green background.  Buttons, brad and ribbon all from stash.

i am entering this into the following challenges:

Elllephantastic  - Red and Green - well I have a red button, and the little boy has red hair!
Digi Doodles Best - Red and Green
A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything goes
Meljens Designs - Buttons and Bows
Prairie Fairy Designs - Buttons and Bows

Thanks for stopping by.   I love comments and really appreciate you taking the time to look at my blog..  Keep safe if you are travelling.

  1. Love that image and those papers! Very nice for a little boy! (oh and don't mind bows for rugby players... there's a pink bow as the logo of a very famous polo shirt company that make polos for rugby, I think...)

  27. Oh Val, I'm so sorry that I'm so far behind with blog visiting. As a result I didn't know you had been poorly but am glad to read you are on the mend now. My daughter's had it too.

    Love your card. LOV seem to be going from strength to strength with the variety of their images now and this little lad is spot on for a boy's card. Love the colourful buttons too.

    Hugs
