Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 85...Buttons & Blooms

Good morning's been a really busy week one way or another and I'm sooooo pleased it's a bank holiday extra day off work to recharge the batteries...yay!

Here is my card for this weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...the theme is Buttons & Blooms and my teamie Helen has chosen this weeks theme! My design team buddies have created some fabulous cards this week so be sure to pop over and take a peek at their creations.

Digi Image : Digi Stamp Boutique (Roberta)
Design Paper : Wild Rose Studio
Rose Red Card Stock : SU!
Embellishments : Broderie Anglaise Lace (RAK from Denise) Gingham Button (Silly Monkey Crafts), Ribbon, Pearls & Flowers from my Craft Stash!
Tools : Rectangular Scalloped Nestability Die
Sentiment : Sorry Can't remember where this came from :(

Sophie did some crafting me with this week...she hasn't made a card for ages and she wanted to colour in an Anya image she found in her craft box...apart from helping her to measure and trim the backing paper this card was all her own work and I think she has done a cracking job...especially placing the flowers...they are perfectly positioned...the little white roses were a birthday pressie from my gorgeous blogging buddy Denise and Sophie has had her eye on them ever since they dropped through the letterbox so I'm not surprised that she got to use them before me lol!
