Buttons and Bows at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
A quick post from me to tell you about our new challenge starting today over at Penny's Paper-Crafty challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Buttons and Bows
We have two great sponsors for you this week:
Bugaboo Stamps - prize of 7 digi images to the winner
Meljen Designs - prize of 4 digi images to the winner

Here is my inspiration project using a cute image from Meljen Designs.

 The image has been coloured with promarkers and I added some liquid pearls and stickles.  The image was then mounted onto yellow cardstock and some faux stitching added.  The backing paper was in my stash and was a magazine freebie many months ago.  For embellishments I added some ribbon, a bow, paper flowers and some buttons.  As this turned out to be a lovely cheerful card I added the get well soon sentiment.  Very spring like too.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your lovely entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges to enter.  Don't forget to check out the gorgeous creations from my wonderful teamies.
