Digital Tuesday Challenge- bling it up


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello everyone and thanks so much for visiting! I have a new card to share today for this week's Digital Tuesday Challenge.
Our Theme this week was chosen by the lovely Maria, and she would like us to
Bling it up.

Here is what I created.


We are being sponsored by Paper Fashions, etc, and the Design Team was given some button cards to play with. I had no idea what exactly a button card is, then after looking at some amazing samples on their blog, I had this idea to create a vintage style card and use a button card on it.
The image of the girl was a freebie that I picked up at Tina46's blog. She has the most amazing vintage cards on her blog and lots of beautiful free vintage pictures too.

I am combining this with the following challenges:
That should be it for this card. I hope you'll play along with us this week for a chance at a fabulous prize from Paper Fashion etc.

Products used:
  • Stamps: digi-Paper fashion button card, freebie girl photo -links are posted above, sentiment SU
  • Papers: Stampin up, designer paper from stash, neenah white card stock, paper lace doily
  • Embellishments: Prima flowers, clear sticky rhinestones, buttons, silver cord, lace
  • Tools: janome sew mini, oval punch, scissors for distressing


Have a great day!!
