Crafting for all Seasons #88 "Buttons and Bows"

Good morning all.

Yesterday I got some crafty post...aquatints and a selection of dies and stamps from Clearly Besotted. Then along came a migraine which put paid to having much of a play...hopefully today..

Today it's time for our next challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Buttons and Bows". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. Our sponsor this time is The Paper Shelter who gave the DT images to work with.

Another treat bag from me!

My gorgeous image is called Fly Pumpkin Fly and I've coloured with promarkers. Dies from Spellbinders. Bag is made from an A4 piece of paper printed on both sides with contrasting papers from Bearly Mine. Ribbons and button from my stash.

Fabulous Sponsor 2014
