Mygrafico Challenge ~ Buttons and Bows

It's April already and over at Mygrafico, Spring is in the air.  Our theme this week is Buttons and Bows and we got to use this lovely set called Pen and Ink Poppies
It's really pretty and all of the Design team came up with some lovely projects.  Do hop over here and have a look.

I chose to take one of the poppies~ the buds~ and team them up with some Hero Arts Digital sentiments.

Mygrafico 2 April Challenge


I used Distress Ink to colour my poppies then cut with a Nellie Snellen die and edged with the pink ink.  Added a doily behind, my white satin ribbon and a heart button together with some white and pink pins. 

I'm current in Perth visiting my daughter ~ can't say I'm sunning myself as they are expierencing the worst weather in months... cool temperatures and even rain today!  So much for the hot sunny weather we expected.  Melbourne was stunning... nice and hot and sunny and fabulous to catch up with our friends, who we have not seen for over 20 years! 

take care

Hi Dawn,

What a gorgeous card. I love what you have done with it.

Are you enjoying Perth (besides the weather)? My mum & sister live there. I like to go to Kings Park you can get some great views from up there. We also go to the Perth zoo, it's such a great day out.

I hope you enjoy yourself despite the weather xoxoxo
