OSAAT Butterfly and/or Buttons challenge


Here is my DT card for our challenge over at One stitch at a time this week, our theme is Butterflies and/or buttons, I have used both.

We are sponsored by

We are looking forward to seeing what you all come up with so please enter our challenge HERE

I made this card for my sister Louise's birthday. She is an air stewardess so does lots of travelling so I  knew she would love the Paris theme.

The images I was given to use is called Paris Poodle and is by Tami of Gingerloft and its available in the Stitchy Store HERE. The set contains 3 images including the eiffel tower and the poodle seperately and also together. The image of the french lady I have used on the centre card is from Sassy Studio Designs and is called Little Honeys France.

I have used a Martha Stewart Punch around the edges of the three easel cards, The backing paper was a freebie in blogland, I have cut the letters that spell Louise using my Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet, the butterflies were cut using a Cheery Lynn die and the stopper is just a button with some twine threaded through and tied in a bow.
