Cutie Pie Challenge – Buttons & Bows!

Cutie Pie Challenge – Buttons & Bows!

Hello, how are you keeping?

We have a brand new challenge at the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog  today and our theme this fortnight is Buttons & Bows! Now we still seem to be getting quite a few non-cute entries which is a shame, but we are the Cutie Pies so we want you to use a CUTE image!

This time we are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons
 and one lucky winner will win a fabulous prize!

For this challenge I made one of my favourite card shapes, a centre stepper, from Centura Pearl using a template from Norma’s blog here.
For a change, instead of sitting on a hopeless hand drawing of a toadstool, I thought I would have my fairy sitting on neatly die-cut clouds! Awwwwww!
Sentiment: Digital Delights
Dies: Spellbinders ‘Cherry Blossom’- Memory Box ‘Puffy Clouds’
Punches: X-Cut Mini Butterfly
Paper/Card: Centura Pearl - Neenah Solar White – Dovecraft ‘Back to Basics IV’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Liquid Pearls – Stickles – pins – buttons – twine – Silky Crush ribbon

Scoot over to the Cutie Pies blog to see all the wonderful projects created by the amazing team.

Thanks so much for looking, and have a great day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
