Emma's Crafty Challenge # 17 Reminder

The current challenge at  Emma's Crafty Challenge is:
"Buttons and Bows"
and our sponsor for this month is Carley Duff from Creata who is offering a prize of a fabulous bundle of crafty goodies.

I started with an 8"x 8" card blank. The green papers are from the Docrafts Chronology range and the red spotty paper is from Docrafts Brights Capsule Collection. I thought it went perfectly with the mushrooms. The wired ribbon and the buttons are from my stash.

I used a fabulous digi by Heather Valentin, available from the Lacy Sunshine Store, It is called "Finkle - Under the Mushrooms" and it can be found in the New Digis section of the store. I coloured the image with Promarkers and created the sentiment on the computer. Once die-cut, I inked the white areas with Distress Ink Bundled Sage.

The extra mushrooms are from the Gnome Digi Bits set also in the Lacy Sunshine Store. As it's provided in a png it was easy to take into MCS and manipulate into the arrangement I wanted. Again I coloured them with Promarkers.

Here is a photo of the wonderful prize from Creata that you could win.
You can enter any new crafty creation as long as there is a button and a bow. We would love to see what you create. Your entry doesn't have to be a card, it could be any crafty project that follows the theme. Please visit the Challenge Blog to see more inspiration from the talented DT and to check out a full list of the rules. You only have until the end of the month to get your entries in, so don't forget.
