Platypus Creek Challenge #10 Buttons and Bows

Good Morning I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.  I did the weather was fabulous here which was perfect for catching up on all the washing and spending time in the garden.  We've been moving and placing some new plants from pots into bare spots in some of our already established gardens, plus planning on where some new gardens can go, its always so nice to connect with the earth and get outdoors.

Today is the start of a new challenge at Platypus Creek.  This week we want to see lots of buttons (3 or more) and bows on your cards.



For my card I chose to work with the Digi Image called Daisy.  I played in Photoshop to create my background and my main image piece, which I have colored with my Tria Markers and then some sponged color around it.  I placed my ribbon on the background piece keeping the left side white whilst sponging color over the right side so that the white space matched the white space framing my main image.  I have used one button as the flower center and four smaller buttons in the corners of the white frame and added a bow to my ribbon.  For the smaller, full daisies in the background I have used some Viva Decor Pearl Pens for the flower center.

If you are like me you would have heaps of buttons in your stash. Right?  So what are you waiting for?  Head over to the Platypus Creek Blog for all the challenge details and for lots more wonderful inspiration from the Design Team.

Beautiful card Danie. I really like the daisies and your use of buttons and the bows are fabulous. I always struggle when using buttons. Maybe I should just try them more often.
