Challenge #299 - Ribbons and Buttons - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, where do these weeks go, here are half way through the year I cannot believe its only 6 months to Christmas what a thought. Anyway this weeks Challenge is all about

Ribbons and Buttons

and for this we would like to see you using both of these but its not critical and Im sure the choice is entirely up to you.
But firstly you will want to know who our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website


But as always it comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, this could be a Image, Paper or Printable and even if you dont, they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so it really is a win win situation dont you think.
And now to show you the card I created for this Challenge


This image reminds me so much of my own mum as she had a treadle machine on which she created such beautiful clothes for myself, brother and sister she was extremely talented and to hear the noise of the foot treadle going up and down was music to our ears. She is called "Vintage Seamstress" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie die to cut her out and a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of brown card the backing paper is also from the same image set and you will find that here as well. I then placed my mounted image towards the top left and the Sentiment was one I found on the internet and then printed it and mounted this also onto a piece of the same brown card.
I then placed a tape ribbon in the bottom right hand corner with the sentiment placed on top, and it the opposite top left I placed another ribbon with a button on top. To finish of I diecut a model and placed in the bottom left and a selection of buttons and embellishments around the mounted image.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this "Ribbons and Buttons" Challenge.
