Totally Papercrafts Challenge


Morning all, it's Friday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts

This week it's the turn of the lovely Kim to set the challenge and she has chosen the theme

Buttons

Now this is a very sad challenge at TPC because this is Kim's very last challenge with us as she is moving on to pastures new. I'm really going to miss her as will the rest of the team!

We're sponsored this week by Bearly Mine and The Ribbon Girl

And here is my, fairly simple card. I've used the swirl from the Stampin Up Baroque Motifs set to make it look like a tree and cut the hearts off the Precious Hearts die and replaced them with the buttons. Simples! And... can I let you into a wee secret.... the kraft paper... it's actually an old envelope I've  recycled/upcycled/whatever!

Such a wonderful creation with great attention to detail. Love the colours and embellishments. All the elements work so well together. I saw this on MIM and just had to pop over to have a closer look.
