Anything Goes Buttons and Bows Challenge #84

Happy New Year to you all! This is my first blog this year - afraid I have been MIA since the holidays. So much going on, so much to do and not enough hours in the day!

Anyway, still busy but need to get back to my DT duties - also need to craft! I have been having withdrawal symptoms lol!

The new challenge at Anything Goes is Buttons and Bows and my contribution is the card I made for my gorgeous granddaughter for Christmas with this challenge in mind.

I love the Molly Bloom stamps for childrens cards and my granddaughter loves the idea that the character has the same name as her, she also has the same endearing smile! 

The papers are all Molly Bloom papers as are the coordinating ribbons.  The circle frame was made using spellbinders dies and this was mounted with 3d foam pads onto a circle of backing paper. I used Molly Bloom stamps: Angel Molly, the star and the cookie jar which were stamped onto  card, coloured with promarkers,cut out and mounted with glue gel. The hearts were stamped onto another backing paper, cut out and mounted with 3d foam pads.

The oval frames and letters are Clarity stamps and they are fab for names, sentiments, greetings etc. These were also cut out and mounted with 3d foam pads. A big bow topped with a button to finish.

Please pop over to Anything Goes to see the fab designs from my fellow teamies - and we have quite a few newbies to the team!

And don't forget to visit the Craft Den for all your crafty shopping.
