Barnie in spring

I have to do a quick thank you and say 'Woo Hoo!'. My first DT card for the Pixie Cottage last week made the top 5 at MelJens first challenge. Thanks so much for chosing that card to showcase ladies.

You are going to be blown away by the cards that the DT have made for this week's Pixie Cottage Challenge; they are gorgeous!

Remember that you can use the sketch / the theme/ or both to enter the challenge. We have a fantastic sketch by our guest designer this week and the theme is buttons. For my DT card I used the sketch and added tiny flower buttons all around the scallop.
I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:

My Time to Craft - Pretty Petals

C.R.A.F.T. - Buttons

Allsorts - Petals and Pearls

Crafty Ann's - Let the sun shine in (without the sun Barnie wouldn't be outside smelling the flowers)

Items used:
Image: Barnie in Spring
Nestabilities - Oval, Circles and Scallop Circles
Papers: Tim Holtz Ideology Vintage Shabby
Prima flowers: Hydrangea and roses
Magnolia flower
Leone Em Maidenhair punch
Pearls, silver cord and ribbon from my stash
Distress Inks

Thanks for looking and I hope you'll find time to play with the Pixies this week.

Hi Sharon

A really pretty card and what an interesting effect you have created by placing an oval in the circles. I would never have thought of doing that but it adds real interest.

Thank you for joining in my Petals adn Pearls theme at Allsorts this week.
