Buttons and Bows!

Welcome to my Sugar Creek Hollow Sensational Saturday Card share! Todays card is for a very Dear friend of mine. I can only Hope she received this card in yesterday's parcel post because if not......Surprise!
My friend Is a very devoted follower of mine and so pleasant to chat with. I love chatting on the phone because she lives a mirror image to my daily life. She understands what I go through and does most of the same. Trying to create while having energetic children at foot is a craft in itself. She sent me the most gracious Happy Mail. Included was papers from one of my Favorite manufactures (7 gypsies) AND>>>> some papers I never thought to design with.


As most know I don't have any large craft stores or even a local scrap store to shop at. Everything has to be ordered on-line. So it's fun to get items I may not have seen or even known about.


Using the K&CO. Designer pack by Brenda Walton (Fiona and Fauna I think) I created a Thank You card!
I chose the butterfly tile image by Sugar Creek Hollow as it was a perfect fit. The butterfly, Iris and music note was Just what I needed. I colored my image with watercolors and lightly misted with perfect pearl mist. I accented with Petaloo flowers topped with buttons and fibers with a rhinestone center. I used country crinkle ribbon from Sugar Creek Hollow as my bow in an amazing aqua color.


I hope you find this card inspirational and check out the  Sugar Creek Hollow Store and Blog!

This is goregous Dawn. I adore the soft color palette with those rich looking papers. The butterfly tile is one of my favorite SCH images and so perfect here. Creative way to those buttons too.

Wow Dawn! This is so soft and beautiful. Your butterfly wings are like an abalone shell. The blues, greens and purples are so wonderful! Love the buttons as flower centers. Very pretty!

Hi Dawn, the textures of your papers are wonderful. I love the distressed edges and want you to tell me how to do this. The colors are so soft and sweet. The added sparkle on the edge is just the perfect accent.
