The challenge over at Allsorts this weeks Distressing with Buttons and Bows
Now I don't know what my problem with these challenges seems to be- and I know I am not alone... Kath!... but I wrote the challenge down to avoid confusion and got on with making my distressed card
Went to take its photo and noticed the other part of the challenge, the buttons and bows and would you believe there was not a button or bow to be seen on my card
So off came the jewels on the flowers and buttons were added in place and a tiny bow added to the sentiment
Hurray !!!at last all aspects of the challenge now complete- so I think I am now safe to post this card
The papers are from a Recollections Autumn pad and I have had the die cut bear for ages but just didn't want to use him but it is now time for him to come out of the museum and be seen publically
Hope you are having a lovely weekend
