Brads, Buttons and Bows

Another week has flown past and we have challenge number 15 for this year at PanPastel UK, which is sponsored by Your Creativity Store.



With brads, buttons and bows I just knew I had to do a sewing themed card and I have used PaperArtsy stamps.


I have another fabulous way of making a background with the pans but am in the process of making the tutorial, I promise it will come soon (I hope).



All the colouring has been done with various PanPastels, I only used ink for the stamping and edging the cut-outs.


Sorry I won't be around today till later, off to Ally Pally to catch up with some friends, some of whom I met up with yesterday, and to see what's on show. You know I will come back with some bits though don't you?

Happy Sunday.
