HMF CHALLENGE #100 - BUTTONS, BOWS & BLING
This is my entry for the HMF Challenge #100 Buttons, Bows & Bling. I decided to make a Christmas card, so this makes 2 xmas cards done and many many more to go. At least its a start. I guess I could call this card Christmas in July. I used copic markers to color this little buy. I just love the color you get from copics. I used black ink around the image to give it a bit of a dark frame to make it stand out a little better. He is placed on Spellbinders red foil that I cut out with a Spellbinders Herloom Ornament die and then ran through the cb with a snowflake embossing folder. A hole was punched at the top of the ornament and I placed a crystal brad there. The green & silver ornaments were made by using versa mark with green and silver ep. The Ho Ho Ho ribbon along the top is from Michaels and I added some Xmas buttons with white ribbon bows in the centres. There is an opal type ribbon running down from the buttons to the ornaments and then silver stickles added along it to add some sparkle. The dp is from SU. The holy was cut out with a sizzix die and then I added christmas red stickles for the berries. EK & MS border punches were used to gussy up the bottom of the card.
I must say that I have been having a great time making cards for the HMF Challenges and love to see what all the DT have come up with. This was my first time doing a blog hop so that was fun as well.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my cards and visiting my blog. Have a wonderul day! Now I'm off to look at all the wonderful entries for this Challenge.
