Sweet Stampin' ~ Use A Button

Hey there crafty pals. My pal Susan is away overseas at the moment enjoying some Summer Sun, so I'm playing along with the Team Susan Sweeties this week for our 'Use A Button' themed challenge. This worked out well, as I had made this creation for another challenge with the wrong sponsor image, funny how fate works sometimes. So I had this cutie spare and with the button on that black flower, worked a treat for this theme. The challenge I made it for had a 'stripes' theme, hence the paper. But I really love how this came together and it's nice to be able to play along with the Team Susan Sweeties this week.

The image is from the lovely All Dressed Up image range. I love the art style of these images. So fabulous and this Prom Princess is a really lovely 'Audrey Hepburn' like image, which so appealed to me for this card. I've kept the colouring very simple as there was so much colour in the paper. I went for a very simple card design with just a thin ribbon and bow and some fabric flowers and heart pins to finish. The lovely flower with the button centre was from Flourish with a Bling, which has sadly now closed. The Stitched Scalloped Oval Die is from Kaisercraft.

I hope you'll come and play along with us this week at Sweet Stampin'. It's a fun and easy challenge, all you need to do is add a button to your creation and of course please add some stamping to be eligible for the Top 3. Can't wait to see what you create! 

I'll be back again soon with another crafty adventure. In the meantime be sure to click through to our challenge to see what my teamies got up to with this theme. See you again really soon. Hugs, Wends xoxo

Love this Wends - keeping the image coloured simply and framed in black against the colourful paper is so dramatic and eye catching.
