SFTW meets Friday Sketchers

This week over on Stampin' for the Weekend the theme is Pink & Grey, ABC Challenges is 'B is for Buttons' and on Friday Sketchers they have sketch #66 to follow:

I used my cute little Daisy image, by Sweet Art Ebony. I just love this stamp, she's so sweet. I coloured her using distress inks and also shaded the background using Tattered Rose. Then I cut her out using the circles nestabilities and mounted it on a scalloped circle. The sketch had quite a lot of layers but it was fun to do. I added some organza grey/silver ribbon and finished off with pink & grey buttons threaded with scrappers floss.

Image: 'Daisy' from SAE, Sugar Nellie
Papers: Blueberry Hill & cardstock (both PM)
Ribbon, buttons & scrappers floss from my stash
Cuttlebug, Nestabilities circle and scalloped circle.

Awards from Heather
Wow!! Heather passed on a total of FIVE awards to me.. I am honoured that she did so. Please go check out her wonderful creations if you haven't done so already

I would like to pass these awards onto some very talented ladies who have been supportive of my blog and who inspire me on a daily basis. I am a huge fan of their work and love to visit their blogs. I would like to thank them all for sharing their work with us.

A beautiful card Sandie, your choice of papers makes your card so pretty, and I love the Daisy image, you've done a fabulous job coloring her. And great job on using buttons instead of flowers. Can't wait to see what you come up with when you start the challenges.
