Sarah Hurley Challenge: Buttons

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with my DT card for our challenge this fortnight at Sarah Hurley Challenges. I chose the theme this week and chose Buttons because I just love them-they are so versatile and I use them all the time!
For this card I used Sarah Hurley Retro Home paper and Cross Stitch 'Thinking of You' greeting, with Butterflies as my focal point made with Buttons from the Boofle collection :-)

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
