Riley Challenge

Believe it or not, I actually made the card in time for the challenge.  Unfortunately I've been having technical difficulties and my camera decided to be a priss and not upload my pictures.  So without further ado AND is my Bows and Buttons challenge!  I promise you, as the Lord is my witness, I WILL indeed have next Tuesdays challenge posted ON THAT DAY.

So For this challenge, I used the adorable Expecting Sophie stamp from the Riley and Company and colored her in with Copics.  Sophie was then fussy cut out and adhered to three mats that were fanned out.  To incorporate the button theme, I used this button paper I found in Hobby Lobby a year or so ago.  I glossy accented a couple of the buttons and them cut them out to add some interest to the bottom of the blue square. A yellow ribbon was used to give Sophie a bow as well as some interest to her frame.  The two pearl flowers are actually nail art stickers I picked up at the drug store.

I stamped the mini sentiment from Papertrey ink on a scrap piece of yellow cardstock and adhered some flower brads from Michaels in matching colors to the buttons.  I then adhered little mini rhinestones (once again, a nailart find) using a dab of glossy accents to each flower center to give them some bling and match the pearl flowers.

I made this card for my older sister who is expecting her 4th child!  It's gonna be a little boy!
