Hi There!

Well today I am doing something that I never do. I actually made a boy's card! Don't ask me what I am going to do with it, but I'm sure I will find a use somewhere... lol Actually, I am doing another new thing today! I am trying out the new updated post loader. But to be honest, its very frustrating. My typing seems soooooo small and I hate this box they've put around my post but I don't know how to remove it! aaarrgghh but anyway! Back to the card!
My recipe is as follows:


DPs assorted from my stash
Image Lili Of The Valley
Colors Crayola Crayons and Goo Gone
Ribbon Offray

Stitching Machine done
Buttons assorted


Here is a frontal view of the card:
 

and a closer view of the colored image:


and the buttons...



and the bow!

I follwed the challenges below in making this card:


Cooking It Up With Katie Buttons, Bows and Blue
Color Throwdown color recipe
Paper Play Challenge Blue, cream and color of your choice
Simon Says sketch


Thanks for coming by for a look! Have a great day everyone :-)
