Brads, buttons and bows at PanPastel UK

Good morning folks and Happy Sunday to you. We're enjoying some lovely weather this weekend,  it seems that spring has arrived at last! We've got a new challenge starting at PanPastel UK and this week our theme is 'Brads, Buttons and Bows', with a fabulous PanPastel Starter kit up for grabs thanks to our generous sponsor Berni from Your Creativity Store.

My DT card started with a PanPastel background made by blending Raw Umber and Permanent red tint PanPastels. I've used a digi stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps, coloured her with Graph'It markers and added some die cut cogs (embossed with gold EP), some ideology cogs, little brass buttons with pink twine bows. To finish off i've added a bow using pink seam binding ribbon.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Anything goes: Heavy Metal
DigiStamps 4 Joy: anything goes
Lexi's Creations: punches or dies
Paper Pretties: buttons

Well i'm off to make another coffee and spend a couple of hours in my craft room
thanks for popping by
