Hello, everyone! I'm delighted to announce that I am a Guest Designer at DigiStamps4Joy this month! Our challenge for May is Buttons, Bows, and Bling. We are halfway through the month, and I am guesting for the mid-challenge reminder. I hope you will head over and join in the fun - there is still plenty of time to enter - the challenge runs until May 31. For my card, I chose the adorable Leggy Lilly and Kitty, which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils.
I die-cut the image with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. You've probably noticed I use these dies on a lot of my cards. Here's a tip: If the stitched rectangle die isn't the right size for your image, die cut it anyway and then die cut it a second time using the outside edge of the die to make the rectangle any size you like, and it's still stitched!
Since our challenge is buttons, bows, and bling, I will point out these items first. The metallic silver buttons are from my stash, and I've had them for many years, originally found at a thrift store; the ribbon and bow are from Little Scrap Pieces (thank you, Karen); and the bling is from Simon Says Stamp and Dollarama.
I added a lot of fun die-cuts too: Poppystamps Walking Cat, Cheery Lynn Ivy Strip, Spellbinders Moroccan Accents, and Spellbinders Scalloped Borders 2. The patterned paper is from MME In Bloom 6x6 paper pad. The ticket sentiment is from Digital Delights, and the butterfly charm is from my stash. The flowers are from I am Roses (pink), Scribble and Scrap (white), K and Company (small yellow), and Dollarama (large yellow).
Please head over to DigiStamps4Joy and join our fun challenge of Buttons, Bows, and Bling! The rules can be found here.
