Emma's Crafty Challenge #17

Welcome to Emma's Crafty Challenge #17 and thank you to all those who took part in our Pink and Blue challenge. The winner will be announced in a few days.
The theme for this challenge is
"Buttons and Bows"
Our sponsor for this month is Carley Duff from Creata who is offering a prize of a fabulous bundle of crafty goodies.

I covered an 8"x 8" card blank with Papermania Kraft Card and layered a paper from MCS Quintessential Country Garden and another from a Prima paper pad. I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and added a couple of lengths of seam binding and a small bow. 

I used a Memory Box die to cut two floral circles from white card and coloured them with Promarkers. The postcards are from the Prima paper and the quadruple bow is seam binding.

I finished with four large buttons and three paper flowers along the bottom and three small buttons at the top.

Here is a photo of the wonderful prize from Creata that you could win.
We would love to see your crafty creations featuring Buttons and Bows. 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 the rules.
