Buttons & Bows

This week's challenge at Friends of Speedy TV is to make a card or other project using Buttons and Bows.  I made this Anniversary Card which is for my sister and her husband for their 18th Wedding Anniversary.  I hope they like it.

The card uses Marianne and Spellbinders dies along with the rose from the Marks Finest Papers Love Remains set.  I love colouring the roses from that set - in fact I was doing one in pink only last night.  This rose bud was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and then H2Os to add a little sheen.  I have also tied a bow in a sheer blue ribbon and added tiny buttons to the die.

The set you could win this week is another flower set - Daffodil Greetings which also features a lovely butterfly.

Thank you for checking this out - please join with this week's challenge - we would love to see what you create.
