Totally Papercrafts #37 Buttons and Bows

Morning everyone... another week has whizzed by and it's time for a new challenge at
Totally PaperCrafts. We had a fab response to last week's 'Great Outdoors' theme, so I can't wait to see all your cards and projects for this week.  Lorraine is our wonderful host, and she has chosen...
"Buttons and Bows"
Time to rummage through all your ribbons and cut the buttons from any old clothes you have!!

Our sponsor this week is Squigglefly, and I have used one of their shy bears digital images - aren't they adorable? I 3D'd this cute little guy, layering up his paws, nose and the present, and then coloured him with Copics. I added plenty of blooms, some shop bought and some punched out of card and added buttons in the centres.
I even got my hands on my Mum's button tin!! Oh what a treat it was when I was little, to be allowed to play with all the buttons and sparkly bits and pieces in that tin. I'm sure that's where my love for shiny things comes from!!   :-)
