The Sugar Bowl - Challenge #10

Hello everyone. Hope your are all well. This card is for The Sugar Bowl Challenge #10 which is a sketch designed by Marlene. This was a great sketch to work with. In fact, over the course of the weekend all the family will have done it, lol! I decided I wanted to use 'Hamish Fixin' (coloured with Distress Inks) by Sugar Nellie for this one and my new papers which are from Nitwit Collections - Assembly Too Selection.

The challenge also has a 'Please Include' and this week it was buttons. So, off I went to B&Q this afternoon and bought these tiny wee nuts to add to each corner of my image. And, I also cut out some small circles, pushed a couple of holes through them with a pin and threaded some blue thread through for 'proper' buttons. The greeting was done on the pc and circles cut with nesties on the bug.

For the inside, I decided I wanted a large nut to match the design on the front. I drew one myself and the circle is meant to be a screw head, lol!

Hope you like it. I loved making it - was great fun to make and I am really pleased with the way it has turned out.
