Tilda & Key

Here is my birthday card for my sons girlfriend who turns 21 at the end of October. I am afraid the papers are from my stash, so no idea who or what they came from. A MS Daisy punch was used to edge the top paper.
My doily I coloured with a Promarker to match the colour scheme, which was laid on top of some lilac sparkly ribbon, although you can hardly see it now. The image (Tilda & Key) is coloured with Promarkers once more & edged with the same. A Magnolia tag die placed on top  & I used my Cuttlebug alphabet to cut out the 21. Hat pin added. Flowers are a combination of Wild Orchid Crafts & stash.
I then placed it into a box, which I have kept quite simple.
Just a big ribbon & some dew drops & theres the card. I now need to go & buy the present which is a Pandora bead, as her parents are buying her the bracelet.

I know it has been ages since I posted a card, but I was away on holiday for 3 weeks & have only been back since last Sunday & this week has been manic. I promise to get around to my favourites blogs soon, I am still here....honest lol.

Button Up

Its time once again for another challenge over at Divas & this week its Button Up & therefore we want to see buttons on your creations. This week is sponsored by Crafty Emmas.

I used a Cuttlebug flower folder, which I had never used before to make the flower, I then ran it through the Cuttlebug again, using a Swiss Dot folder this time, onto which I stuck 2 buttons to make the centre. I also used a Cuttlebug border & stuck that along the bottom edge, onto which I stuck more buttons.
Paper is from stash, as are the flowers & ribbon & brad. The leaves are a Sissiz die, coloured with Promarkers. Sentiment is a freebie from blogland somewhere.

I am looking forward to seeing what you can create using buttons & don't forget to pop over to the Divas blog & see what my fellow DT have made this week.

I am away on holiday at the moment, & whilst I have internet, its very slow, so please bear with me if I am not getting around blogland as usual & commenting on my favourite blogs.
