Ruby Wedding and Post 800

Ages ago I won some chipboard from Molossi and Marianne's , I wasn't going to use it but this card is quite large so the weight wasn't a problem . I gave it a fine spray of white paint before adding the embellishments.

Buttons 'n' Bows

Transform your buttons with a few gems -

I want to add another button in this left hand side but then I would have an even number . I feel there should be something in the top left -perhaps a couple of gems - what do you think ? Would this be a good place for a small sentiment like 'Thank You ' .

Wedding Joy

It's hard to see but there is a small clear button between the the two pearls on the left.

Happy Birthday

My friend Jeanne has a birthday today and as we approach winter here in Australia I thought the cheery colours would be good.

Mothers Day

I try and keep my buttons tidy in this storage box - good old  shirt buttons and the like are just in  a plastic ice cream tub . I used to spend hours as a child  going through the button tin at my Nana's .


This background paper came from a box of tissues - I peeled off the stiff cardboard backing - cut off the store logo from one end and hey presto - I don't buy many brown papers ( if any ) but I loved the design on this.I used a HOTP template to hand cut the large brown shape -two punched circles -another bit of hand cutting for the flower and a button.

A bit of a mish mash

I say a bit of a mish mash because the balloons and the elephant were die cuts given to me by a friend in 2006 - the bakers twine , the rainbow stickers and the glitter embossing powder all came from different challenge wins.
Sadly I only had red balloons which I coloured white and then heat  embossed with the lilac which came out darker than I was expecting - on reflection I should have covered the balloons with glue and sprinkled white glitter on them.

UnstampaBelles - It's the day to play along at challenge 34 - Incorporate an animal or a bird  - option to use pastel colours - I think I was doing OK until the balloons -  a bit too dark .
