Before I get on to this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, I'd just like to say:
Happy New Year to all my lovely visitors!
It's Bridget's turn to choose the theme...and she's easing you gently into 2011 with a nice simple challenge of:
'Buttons & Bows'
I've made an easel card calendar, using the fab 'Bee Costume' stamp by Penny Black, which I coloured using watercolour pencils, and then cut out using my Labels 1 Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter). The checked paper is from the 'Kioshi' pad by BasicGrey (available here at the Secret Crafter), and I embossed the plain yellow card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder (available here at the Secret Crafter). The flowers are by Prima, the ribbon is from Poppicrafts, the buttons and brads are by Papermania, and the calendar tab is by Anita's.
Here's a view from the side showing the easel card shape:
And a close-up of the front...you can just about see the sparkle on his wings I added with a Sakura Stardust pen:
I used the sketch from the Truly Scrumptious Challenge for the layout of this card.
