Love to Scrap! Challenge blog #49 Buttons and Bows

Hi Crafty Friends! Happy Monday! 

I hope all of you are doing well. We finally got lots and lots of snow! I was so excited. What do you all do on your snowy days? My kids always want hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls for breakfast when it's cold out. I really love to see the excitement on their faces. It only snows here a couple times a year, so it's always like an additional Christmas morning. I don't even mind the wet floors from where they trampled through the house with their snow covered clothes.

 I think snowy days make for perfect crafting weather, and I made a fun new card this weekend for LTSCB :) It's not my traditional style, but I really love it! Our challenge is to use both buttons and bows, and we have some awesome sponsors with awesome prizes : A Day For Daisies, with $12 gift certificate  (equal to 3 images of choice). Bugaboo Digi Stamps with 7 images to the winner. 
Limited Runs Stamps with 3 images to the winner. 

 My image is from Bugaboo Digital Stamps and this sweet girl is the Chibi Flower Pot Peeker. Isn't she adorable? I used my Spectrum Noirs to color her. The message on the flower pot was an addition from a Simon Says Stamps stamp set, I thought it was a nice message for the image. The circles were all cut out with a Sizzix Nestabilities circle die set and all of the papers were from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss. I really love that paper collection. I made this entire card around those papers and the flower girl image.

I had a lot of fun making this card, and I am really pleased with the finished product. I hope you all enjoy it as well. Let me know what you think in the comments section below. I really hope to see your buttons and bows creations at Love to Scrap! Challenge Blog :) This challenge will be running through the 15th. Thanks for reading!!
