Challenge No 9 - Buttons and Bows

This weeks challenge is designed to help you use up some of the buttons and ribbons you have in your stash. I know I have loads and don't use them half as much as I should. Entries for this challenge will be accepted until July 27 and the winner will be selected by random.org.


Our sponsors for this challenge are Ribbon Mad - a big thank you to Emma for sponsoring the challenge this week. These ribbons are just awesome - you won't be disappointed.

Below are the Design Team examples which I hope will inspire you to create your own work of art, it can be a card, LO, ATC - please interpret the challenge in anyway you like - but have fun doing so!



Linda has created this card and has used the lovely papers from the Kaboodle Doodle range. The spots and stripes are from the Dots Kit and the pink paper is from the Old Kit - aren't they just gorgeous papers.


Ann has created this gorgeous card using Kaboodle Doodle papers from the Morris Dance range of papers - isn't that image so sweet!


Angela has created this stunning fan design - just look at that card sparkle.

Chris has created this gorgeous design using some of my favourite autumn colours that suit those stamped designs to perfection.




Now it's over to you to show us your creations.

PS thank you for telling me how to make a direct link in my comment - I just asked about that very thing 5 minutes ago and then the next link I got to, you told me exactly what to do. Except, I just got "Your HTML cannot be accepted: Tag is not allowed." so something must be wrong.
