Gothic Arches "Buttons"


The theme at Gothic Arches is "Buttons". Buttons are not actually my thing, I never can quite see the point of them (no offence Dawne, your card is amazing!!) Anyway, as Gothic Arches is probably my favourite challenge site, I decided to use it as a real challenge. So I have used lots of little buttons, but kind of disguised them in my ladies hair band and as the centre of the flowers I used as embellishment.

BTW...I feel the same as you do about buttons...unless they serve a purpose in the design...they just seem to have no business there..LOL!!!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
