Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #317

Happy Wednesday! Only two more days of work and then I'm off for a week, I am so looking forward to it.
As it's Wednesday, it's time for a new challenge over at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge, our theme this week is Anything Goes and we have a fab sponsor, Cute as a Button.
You may have seen last week that we've got a design team call out at the moment. Sadly Caz has left the team and I am also stepping down as I'm struggling with my health at the minute. It's a fab team to work with, you need to be able to work with digi stamps and comment on two out of every ten comments and make a card once a week. It's a really friendly and helpful team, so, if you've never been on a design team before, this could be a great first team for you.
I'm still making a few cards until some new teamies are appointed and so I used this cute image from our sponsor, Cute as a Button for my card.
I printed off the image and coloured it with my trusty copics. I used tattered lace round fancy label dies to cut out the image and frame it with some turquoise card.
I mat and layered up a background of turquoise card and patterened paper from an old lili of the valley pad on a 6x6 card base. It doesn't show as well in the picture as in real life, but the paper has dark purple dots on it and so I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Hugs in a similar colour to tie in. The pearls in the corners are also a deep purple and not as black as they look on screen. I added a bit of faux stitching round the edge of my image to finish it off. Simples x
I'm looking forward to seeing your creations and don't forget the DT call!
