PaperPlay Challenges - "Ribbon, Lace and Buttons"

Another Thursday.. Another PaperPlay Challenge!! Can you believe it's almost the end of July?! Where has this year gone?! We have a super fun challenge for you girly girls this week!!

We want to see..


What a combo!! I had a pretty hard job, I won't lie. I used to LOVE using buttons on my cards.. and I have a TONNE.. but you know how novelties die off and you find something else that fascinates you.. well it was good to get those beautiful buttons out again!!

I knew which image I wanted to use from the off. I recently won the entire June release from TGF so wanted to use one of the princesses.. ribbon and lace suits those to a tee, right?!

This is gorgeous Princess no. 03. I have coloured her hair and skin using Copics, her crown using ProMarkers and paper pieced the rest of her using paper from Fancy Pants - It's the Little Things.

The cute little castle is from Pollycraft Cherry Kisses collection which have also coloured using ProMarkers. I thought this would be perfect. I have fussy cut the princess and used a circle nestie.

Both my pink twill stripe ribbon and white lace are from The Ribbon Girl, as for my buttons.. they're from various Basic Grey collections. I have added pink bakers twine to the largest button and added liquid pearls around and about the card. As usual I have used Frayed Burlap DI and a brown fineliner to add definition the the edges of my paper and cardstock.

A little Prima flower and a final tag of ribbon in the top corner finish off this card. Not a WOC flower in sight! ;)
