Week 5 at the Creative Cottage Challenge Blog

Good morning hope your all having a good week so far. Can you believe it week 5 at the Creative Cottage Challenge. This week we want "Buttons and Bows". Oh yes, i love ribbon so bows is no problem, but buttons, thats another matter, i rarely use them! Have used some of the fabulous papers from the Birthday Wishes Kit.

I have combined the digi papers with a Lili of the Valley die cut image. I find them perfect for quick cards, and such adorable images too! I found these tiny lilac buttons that match these papers perfectly.

A sentiment done on my PC and of course using one of those fabulous Martha Stewart border punches!



I had some of these papers left over from my DT card so made this other little card, this time using another LOTV die cut image, but im afraid no buttons!



Have added flower sequins with flat backed pearl flowers in the middle. Another quick and easy make.

We hope you will join us again this week, and i look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your marvellous creations.

Hugs Linda x
