Buttons & Bows Challenge

Click on the images to enlarge!

Well we've warmed up slightly it's now only freezing and this morning there was no ice on the windows, just a fun skate to school where untreated roads are sheet ice covered with icing sugar snow!!! Oh joy and sad children as the school next door to them is closed as the pupils travel in from all over the county, but my two have had to go to school.  I'm a bit sad too as it means I have to collect them.  More joy!!!!!!
To take my mind off the drive I'm sharing this card with you that I made yesterday for the Sweet Stampin Challenge of Buttons and Bows.  It just so happens that my card fits in with these challenges also.
Meljens - Buttons & Bows
Fairy Fun Friday - Buttons & Bows
Papertake Weekly - Cut it out
The buttons and bows on my card are obvious in the accents to the bottom right and the bows are made from Stampin' Up! gold elastic cord and real red taffeta ribbon at the top of my washing line posts.  For cut it out I have punched mini hearts for the tops on the washing line posts and I've also cut out each letter from the Stampin' Up! Newsprint Designer Series Paper just like Shelli did at Convention recently.  Of course you can spot my scallop trim borders and also the curly label pieces to the top left.  A few self adhesive rhinestones adds the sparkle that we need for the festive season and there you have it a challenge entry to cover all.  Why not take a look at the other challenge entries for more inspiration. 
Don't forget I'll be launching my special GIFTS TO GO packages very soon so check back.
