New Challenge #132 at Glitter N Sparkle

Back Again,
well I'm finally feeling better after a horrible week of illness.

And what has been happening,
there was this huge yellow hot thing in the Sky this week,
(somebody told me it is called the Sun)
so I have been out enjoying it, hehe.
We have been out looking at my Back Garden,
planning what we would like to achieve this year in it.
Also we had a lovely family day at the local waterpark
with the children, both my Partners and his Sisters.

But could it last, nope back to wind and rain again this weekend.
Never mind more crafting time for me (yay)...
Though this week I start my new course,
which I'm looking forward to and dreading all at the same time.
Lets see if  I can physically cope with what I'm going to be doing!!!!!!
(wish me luck please)

Anyway on with this weeks Card.

My Project this week is:-
Button Love Digi Stamp
from Cute As A Button
(one of our sponsors)

To start with I used a Pre-Cut White Diagonal Easel Base Card
Then I cut out some Pink Card
to fit over the Face of the card.
For the Base and the Face I cut some Butterfly/Blossom Paper

Next I printed the Image out

  on White DC Paper
and coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens

                                                            Vanilla          - Skin,
                                                            Satin             - Skin,
                                                            Blush            - Cheeks,
                                                            Dusky Pink  - Buttons,
                                                            Blossom        - Buttons, Flowers, T-Shirt,
                                                            Dusky Rose  - Buttons, Lips,
                                                            Lavender      - Bag, Buttons, Nail Varnish,
                                                            Lilac               - Bag, Buttons, Trousers,
                                                            Pastel Blue    - Bow, Buttons,
                                                            Denim Blue    - Bow, Button, Trousers,
                                                            Sandstone      - Hair,
                                                            Caramel         - Hair,
                                                            Cocoa              - Hair,
                                                            Burnt Sienna - Hair,

I then Die-Cut the Image out,
using the Medium Oval Ornate Frames Die
(X-Cut XCU503281).
 Using the same Die I also cut it out of Pearlised Purple Card
(Ross Papers)
for the Frame around the Image.

Next I 
put together a selection of Paper Roses for the Base Corner.
I used 1 Large Purple Rose. 
And for the Small Roses, 
I used 3 Cream, 2 Blossom Pink, 1 Magenta, 2 Cyan.
(all from my stash)
And added a Metal Butterfly Charm

To tie the Image in I added some Amethyst Medium Buttons 
to the 4 corners on the Face 
and dotted 3 Small Pink Buttons on  flowers on the BP.
and on the Base I use a row of Small Light Blue Buttons 
as a stopper so the Face can stand up.
And I also added some Glossy Accents
to the Buttons on the Image to make them shine 
like the Plastic Real ones.

And finally I added a Pink Glitter Butterfly Topper
(Hot Pick Decorative Toppers - The Range)
to the corner of the Card.
