Buttons and bows

Hello and a very happy Wednesday to you all
My summer break has begun - hooray although my youngest son is still at school for another week - he is not a happy bunny at all. Hopefully (weather permitting) I will be in the garden giving it a sprucing up after all the rain we have had over the weekend.
The challenge at Penny Black Saturday challenge is buttons and bows and the colour challenge at the Ribbon Girl is aqua/turquoise so I decided to combine the two and here is my 
card -
I began by covering a 6 inch card blank with a striped paper from LOTV's Up, up and away paper pad (did say it was one of my favourites). I then cut a square using Tonic's layering squares from another of the papers and then cut one edge with Spellbinder's bracket borders 2, attached a piece of lace (from the Ribbon Girl) along one edge and then attached the whole thing to the card base.
The image is Tuip jungle from Penny Black which I  coloured with the following Promarkers - 
  • cat - cool grey 1, cool grey 3, cool grey 5 and coral
  • tulips - cool aqua, oasis and rock pool
  • leaves - bright green, forest green and pine
  • sky - pastel blue
I cut the image out with Spellbinder's Grand decorative ovals, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and attached to the card base with Pinflair.

The bow is a Tattered Lace die which I cut from another paper from the pad and attached to the card with double foam pads.
To finish I added a crystal button to the centre of the bow.

I woud like to enter this card into the following challenges - - July colour challenge - aqua/turquoise - July challenge - buttons and bows

Many thanks for stopping by
