Crafting when we Can #22 Recipe

It's time for a new challenge at CWWC and this time we have a recipe for you. We'd like to see 1 image, 2 ribbons and 3 buttons on your creations.  We're being sponsored by Spesch Designer Stamps who supplied the images for the DT to work with.

My image is called Max and I've coloured him with promarkers before die cutting with an oval nestie. I actually got around to using a fine tip for colouring his hair for the first time, I've only had them for about 8 months! Papers are from We R Memory Keepers and were a magazine freebie. Dies are all from Spellbinders, border punch from Martha Stewart. Ribbons, buttons, twine and sentiment are all from my stash.
