Buttons, Bling and Embellishment Things!

Good morning to you all!  I would like to start by saying a huge whopping thank you to Susan from Paper, Card, Ribbon and Flowers for the most amazing candy she sent me.  I won her candy when she got to 50 followers and I received it yesterday and there was so much in the Aladdin's Cave of a box - thank you so much Susan!  I have followed her blog for a while and it is really worth going to see as she has some gorgeous cards and deserves to have a lot more than 51 followers, please visit her here when you get a moment!

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Delightful Challenges, the theme is:


Here is my card:

For my card I have used:
Flower Power Rosie available here

She has been coloured with my Copics.  The papers are Coredinations cardstock and First Edition Bird Song.  I have used a Spellbinders Grand Nestie Circle, Floral Oval and Large Oval.  The corner is a Dienamics die.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart, resin flower from My Crafty Heart, Gem and Spacer are from The Ribbon Girl and the crochet flower, ribbon and gems are from my stash.  I had finished the card and put it away and then realised the challenge included buttons! So I had to get it out and find somewhere to put buttons and the only place I could see was her dress.

Our sponsor this week is:

Divas by Design - Buttons and Bows
Cuttin and Stampin - Use Flowers
