The Sunday CD challenge - Buttons

Its a beautiful morning here in Somerset, the sun is shining and its quite warm, I hope its the same where ever you are. This for me seemed a hard challenge , I don't like buttons on cards, but that's me and then I lost my mojo, so this is not the best card in the world. I used an image from The Pamela West Collection from Joanna Sheen. I do like her Cd's and this is an image I have not used before.
I put the image on an oil water pink sheen card, which reflects the colours from the image, rainbow ribbon from Spiral. The pink buttons I sewn into the silk flowers and then used silicone glue to fix them onto the card. I finished off the card with silver peel offs. I used a white scalloped card as the base.

There are some lovely cards on the challenge site so do pop over and have a look link

I hope you are keeping well and until we meet again in blog land, take care

  2. Hi Margaret, to say you don't like buttons on cards your card looks lovely with them. I like the oil on water card, have had a few sheets of this and use it very sparingly. Great image from Joanna Sheen cd, Ithink she is one of our most used on the challenge blog.
    Many thanks for joining us at CD Sunday and good luck with the draw.

  8. Hi Margaret, You may not like buttons on cards, but this one is lovely and the buttons in the middle of the flowers do not look out of place at all.
