3 buttons and 3 jewels....

,....is the challenge today over at Sarah Kay! Sounds easy right!!
I have had this CTMH paper sitting here for ages and it just reminded me of a picnic blanket so I thought it would be perfect for this adorable image. The layout was inspired from a sketch by Katharina. When I was finished the circle looked empty so I stamped some flowers in with the Delight in Everything set by CTMH. It still looked empty so I put faux pearls in the centers of the flowers and went over them with my trusty gel pen. I must say I rather like the way it turned out!! The sentiment is computer generated.

Paper: CTMH
Ink: distressed inks
Accessories: buttons ~ stash, Gems in flowers ~ spacers from Micheals, ribbon ~ Micheals, faux pearls ~ K & co.


Well thanks for visiting (I love to hear from all of you) and I hope all of you have a fantastic day!!!!
