For this weeks theme of buttons and bows on the Cute Card Thursday blog I've coloured one of Marianne's new Don and Daisy stamps just released, this is Daisy knitting a nice warm scarf, or maybe it's a jumper, hard to tell! I coloured with Copics but put them away before noting down the colours, sorry about that.
The papers are from my stash, originally used for Christmas but equally at home for any time of year. I've run a dark green ink pad around the edges of the image and the papers instead of adding mats, and I've covered up most of the green stripe paper with my embellishments. The white layer is Marianne's new Craftable die CR1203, the flowers are made with the mini poinsettia set LR0142, the red sprays are from LR0106 and the skeleton leaves are from LR0156. I've finished with a red gingham bow and white button, 3 little red hearts, and because I'm out of round red gems I added blobs of red to the centres of my flowers with the pearl maker pen - but I'm not happy with the red pen as it tends to spread rather than giving me a nice round pearl effect.
Fussy and Fancy Friday have a polka dot theme running, and the Lollipop Crafts and Diva's by Design blogs have an anything goes theme, so I'm entering my card with them too.
I hope you can stop by the Cute Card Thursday blog to see the rest of the DTs creations, and read more about our sponsor and prize for this week. And, over on the Don & Daisy blog there is the opportunity to win the stamp I've used for my card today.
