Button up

Happy Tuesday

and

Happy Spring!!!


I am so excited that it is now officially spring!! I just love spring and I can't wait to see all the trees turn green!
I made this card for this week's Digital Tuesday challenge. Karen is our hostess and she chose the theme

Button up.

You can use one button or a lot of buttons. Of course we have another fabulous sponsor, this week it's the stamping boutique and they also generously gave the Design Team a few images to choose from. I fell in love with the "Fairies Frolic" image so of course it is what I chose to use.

I actually printed the image out three times because I wanted to do a 3D effect, but I am not sure it shows well in my picture. The flowers that you see are all part of this amazing image, as is the fairy sitting on the mushroom and all of the little fairies in the background.
The image can be purchased here.

Card front was adhered with pop up dots because I wanted the little fairies to be in the background. My paper is from my stash, I think it might be from a DCWV stack.
I kept the card pretty simple, and just embellished with the flowers which are part of the image, a button with silver cord and then to finish it off I did some paper piercing and added glitter. The sentiment is from the clear penny black stamp "critter party".

Here are a few other challenges I am combining this with:
I hope you find some time time to play along this week. There are 5 digis up for grabs from our amazing sponsor!! And they have so many to choose from!!

Have a happy and sunny day!
Ellie.

What a beautiful card! I really liked this image too, I actually really liked almost all the images the sponsor gave us this week and had a hard time choosing. I ended up choosing the turtle, cause I saw no one else had used that image yet. Love your 3D effect. Brillant idea!

Hallo Ellie!
Deine Karte ist super toll. Super coloriert und super schön mit dem Fenster. Die Prickelpunke und der Glitter verleiht der Karte einen besonderen Touch.

Lg, Natascha
