Lookin' Pretty

Welcome to the weekend.
It's week #2 at Crazy4 Challenges where I am the Guest Designer all month.  
Every week, some really great challenges to inspire you all month long.
This week's challenge is to create a feminine birthday card with a button(s) on it. 

I began with a piece of paper that I had marbled.  For instructions and details see this post:

I stamped the flowers and the sentiment using my MISTI and added some string and a button.  Love the depth of colour the marbling gives to the background.

Also adding my card to these challenges:

Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES


Craft Stamper- TAKE A STAMP

Crafty Girls Creations- ANYTHING GOES

Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.
Have a great weekend.

Supplies:  stamps- Studio G, Unity/ Memento bl ink/ button/ string/ Ranger Alcohol inks
