CD Sunday Challenge - Buttons and Bows

Hadn't a clue where I was going with this challenge, I was looking for something vintage military. Perhaps an officer and his lady (to cover the buttons and the bows) but somehow ended up with this dear little child. His face was so appealing I couldn't ignore him! This little chap is from Joanna Sheen's Baby Love CD from the photos section.

I have used a colour palette of silver, very pale blue and surprisingly Sir Tim's Milled Lavender Distress Ink for the mauvey pink. This is the first time I have ever used this ink colour on a project in its own right, usually the colour looks yuck.

The background card is embossed with a script folder and sanded for texture. The buttons are made from nesties and embossed. The stamped buttons are by Creative Expressions. Our little chap has been framed and layered with oval nesties and pearls added for a more vintage look. The white and silver ribbon is courtesy of my friend Gladys.

I hope you like this card, I enjoyed making it. Please feel free to leave a comment - they are all welcome.

  7. What a beautiful card, Janet. I love the script background behind that adorable child. I'm with you on the milled lavender. I have it and have tried to use it but usually it turns out pretty insipid. You somehow got past that for this piece as everything looks awesome.

  8. Great card Janet. It all works so well together, well thought out.
