Speedy's Challenge #6, Buttons and Bows!

Hi Everyone, this is my entry for this weeks Speedy the Cats Friend's Challenge. This weeks challenge is to use buttons and bows! There was also exciting news this weeks, which will mean more chances to win! I love the sets I have from Mark's Finest Papers, and wish I could afford to buy them all, but now there's a greater chance to win, so make sure you check it out here at Mark's Finest Papers!

I used the Chickdee from the Ferns and Chickadee set. I had orginally stamped him with memento black and coloured him with copics, but then I decided he needed a boost so I stamped him again with versamark and embossed with black embossing powder. I cut this one out and popped it up on the original. which is a label #3 die that's also popped up.

The card base is riding hood red, with a layer of natural ivory, and then kraft embossed with the allegro EF, because birds do like to sing! I sponged the edges of the kraft with Tim Holtz antique linen.

The ribbon is from SU, it was in the Christmas mini. the button is from my sewing box and I used linen thread to tie it on.

Recipe
Stamps: Ferns and Chickadees
Paper: riding hood red, natural ivory, kraft
Ink: versamark, memento tuxedo black, riding hood red, Tim Holtz antique linen
Accessories: copics, black EP, label #3, allegro EF, ribbon, linen thread, button, dimensionals, sponge

Have a Great Evening!
