Blue and white with buttons and bows ....

The Ribbon Girl is sponsoring Just Magnolia & H S this week and we are giving a lovely collection of buttons!   You're in for a treat when you visit the Just Magnolia blog - the DT projects are fabulous!

 I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest DT - the theme is Buttons and Bows and I decided to do make a girly card but in blue and white which I think still looks girly and pretty.   I chose this image because she is holding a large heart shape button and there is also a button on her hair band and I coloured her with copics and added lots of Stardust Stickles.

I used white zig zag cotton lace with blue and white saddlestitch ribbon to contrast with the very flowery background paper.  I die cut a tag from a Magnolia die and tied blue twinkle ribbon through the hole and stamped a sentiment from Papertrey Ink.

 I made the flowers with a Magnolia flower die and added bright blue small polka dot buttons tied with blue/white divine bakers twine.  Couldn't resist adding a magnolia swirl and heart/leaf swirl as well, plus a spot of liquid pearls around the scalloped mat. 
Buttons, twine, lace, saddlestitch, liquid pearls, stardust stickles are all from here
See you soon, Mary G x
