Crafting for all Seasons #44 Buttons and Bows

Good afternoon. 
Yesterday passed me by in a veil of paracetamol and hot honey and lemon as I've come down with a stinking cold so no crafting was done - and I really need to get these wedding invites finished! All the snow here had completely disappeared by the time I got up, we did have another dusting this morning but that soon disappeared too. I do feel a little better today but I hate having a "muggy head".
Today it's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Buttons and Bows". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Bugaboo and the DT were given images to use.

I've used Sew Sun Button, coloured with promarkers then fussy cut and tied some Inkylicious fibres in a bow through the button. Backing paper is from Webster's Pages; dies from Spellbinders; doily and sentiment from my stash.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.

Challenges entered:
Moving along with the Times - happy birthday
Anything Goes - buttons and bows
Papertake Weekly - tie up your loose ends
Passion for Promarkers - favourite colour combo (peachy pink and green)
Cheerful Stamp Pad - tickled pink
Use your Stuff - birthdays (doily and fibres)
I Love Promarkers - anything goes
