All The B’s :)

Morning peeps and I hope you are all  managing to stay warm today - the temperature has really dropped these last few days here in Chester. It’s fleecy PJs and electric blanket time here at Chez Piggy and even Ricardo isn't moaning about the blanket going on, mainly because the cold work him up on Sunday night.

So as it’s Tuesday,  it’s  time to bob over and catch up with what’s happening over at Papertake Weekly and this week our theme is

Buttons, Bows, Bling & Blooms

You don’t have to use them all – you can use whichever ones you want – but I managed to get them all on here.

We have the most gorgeous prize as well because we are sponsored by Mary & Andrea at The Ribbon Girl and there is  a gorgeous kit that they’ve put together so if you get a sec, nip and check it all out peeps.

So …..

… here’s what I did.

I haven’t done one of these circle cards for a while but I wanted to do something a little bit different.

I used one of the Lili of The Valley Spring Animal images – this one is Gift Wrapped – and gave him the Copics treatment and I went for Spring colours – all nice and clean and fresh looking – and I used these pens -

Bunny – C00. C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C7, R00, R11, R20

Butterflies & prezzie – B0000, B000, B00, B12, Y00, Y02, Y06, Y08, Y38, YG0000, YG00, YG03

Grass – G99, YG0000, YG03

The paper is from the FQB Hoppy Hearts collection from Nitwits  (I think, but as I typed it, a doubt crept into my mind so I’ll check it out and edit it if it’s not right)

It’s hard to see the white  fence against the white background  but it’s there and I used the  Magnolia Lovely Fence Die from Simon Says Stamp.

The bow was made from 25mm Gold Yellow No 37 Berisford Satin ribbon from The Ribbon Girl (of course!!) and the bling is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

A  little arrangement made from  these -

Blue Two-Tone 15mm Pretty Blossoms from The Ribbon Girl

White long stem stamens, White PoppiesWhite Gypsophila, and carnation made using  Foundation White Blooms and all from Wild Orchid Crafts

I cut up bits of paper lace made from a MS Eyelet Lace punch and stuck them around the edges of the card base, after I had sewn the thing to within an inch of it’s life!!! Phew, it took oh  soooo long to do!

Then I stuck on some blue tiny ric-rac ribbon (fantastic alliteration there Miss Piggy!!) and this was also from The Ribbon Girl.

So there’s the old card done and I’ll be back tomoz with something slightly different – a bit in yer face it is.

Here, have a little sneakie peekie ……

ooooooo!!!! Blue and yellow!! One of my very favorite color combinations in the whole world! Pair that up with my favorite polka dots and I'm in love! LOL! this is soooo gorgeous, Dawny!! Love everything about it! Awesome job piecing that punched border around the circle! This card had to have taken you sooo many hours to create! But it was worth every second of it! I love it!

Hi Dawny,
Well I am having my first hop around your archives and I must admit this little card is just gorgeous. I sat here for a min or two trying to work out how you had used MS's punch to form that circle (I have same punch set and would love to do that) and I think it is so clever how you did it and very effective. I will have to 'borrow' that idea.. ;)
Off hopping around again. Bye for now. Linda
