The Paper Shelters 59th Challenge - "Buttons and Bows"

Good Morning Everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Easter, ours was a bit traumatic watching over a rather depressed little dog, shes having to wear a collar to stop her licking her feet and removing her stitches, shes already had to have one of her feet restitched and will now have to wait until next week before she can have them removed. Anyway back to this weeks Challenge over at The Paper Shelter Blogspot and for this one we want to see "Buttons and Bows" on your cards, and as always we are being sponsered by Veronica and Pedro,

and they are offering you $20. to spend on their website The Paper Shelter, thats providing you have used one of the gorgeous products on your card, but even if you havent they will still give you three digi images of your own choice.
Anyway I decided to use this little cutie,

isnt she gorgeous shes called "Cirque" and you will find her here, (this is an image that Ive had for awhile and not used) Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour her, afterwards I used the Oval Nestabilitie Die to cut her out, then mounted her onto the Crown Oval from Nestabilitie Dies. The sentiment is one of the CC stamps and this has also been mounted on some of the left over green card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green card and one of three papers from the "Victorian Beauty" papers and you will find them here. The first paper is a cream background with roses on and the second a pretty pink paper thats been mounted across the card, and then for the third one Ive used a green background one. Then around the card I have wrapped a piece of lace with a piece of green seam binding ribbon thats been tied into a triple bow.
The mounted image was then stuck in the middle with the sentiment below on the right, to finish of I have stuck small flower buttons around the image on the crown points, and with some of the left over paper I used a Die-namics rolloed flower die to cut them out and created a flower thats been mounted in the top right hand corner on some punched out leaves.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that your will go across to The Paper Shelter Blogspot and see what the rest of my very talented Design Team have created for you, and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this weeks "Buttons and Bows" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
