Sugar Bowl Challenge 10

I just had to join in with the challenge over at the Sugar Bowl , it's a great sketch by Marlene and you also have to use buttons somewhere on your card.


I used my chick a dee stamp which is obviously from Sugar Nellie as I only have 1 other Sugar Nellie girl which I have used a lot. I know she has a little chick in her hand and it is probably more suitable for Easter but she is so cute and who says she only has to be for Easter? I use some of my Christmas stamps throughout the rest of the year too lol
I got these delish papers at my last visit to the papeterie in Aberdeen. I bought them all in single 12x12 sheets as they don't do pack of them there :( but I think I have the whole Wild Raspberry collection now and I love every one of them!
I had a hard time finding flowers to go with this colours as most of my flowers are pink or pastel colours, but I remembered about a bag of Primas I bought from Aries Crafts a few weeks ago that I hadn't opened. It has loads of different colours and sizes in it so I eventually found some.
As for the button thing well that was a whole story in itself! I don't have much buttons. No idea why because I love using them but my local craft shop doesn't really sell them. Will have to go looking on the internet for some nice ones :)
I think my Daughters have been in about them because I couldn't find two the same!!
So my buttons are totally different from each other but I don't care. As Stef keeps telling me "that's art" lol.

Recipe:
Stamp: Sugar Nellie Chick a Dee
Papers: all from K&Co Wild Rasberry collection.
Embelishments: Prima flowers, brad, buttons, spacer and charm from stash. Swirl is a Cricut die cut

Hope you are all having a fab day

Lora she is lovely and I always think apart from the obvious Easter one they can be used at any time of the year. This one suits this card layout and colours so well and I agree with Stef if ya buttons don't match its still art lol. I agree that this card is a work of art and beautiful.
