Cute as a Button! No not me Crafty Catz

Good morning is it snowing where you are it is trying very hard here but i think it may turn to rain fingers crossed. Well as my title says CUT AS A BUTTON is the challenge at Crafty catz this week and it was set by the lovely Dianne. Our sponsors for this challenge is the wonderful  digital companies

Yes 2 sponsors and 2 prizes up for grabs.
This week sees the last creation from our lovely GDT Jill and what a wonderful job she has done so please pop over and share some love. Next week we will have the equally lovely and talented Jac with us.
So onto my card for this fab challenge we where luck enough to be given some fab images from THE PAPER SHELTER  and i picked this cutie.

I have gone with a more pastel theme something i havent done for ages. DP is from my stash sorry i must stop taking them out of my pads but i do know it came from the lovely Elaine. The die cut bird is thanks to tilly and i coloured with distressed inks. The image is coloured with promarkers and the button and ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons from some candy i won at The papertake challenge. Memory box die, sentiment from Lili of the valley lace from stash , white rafia from Janette, gems from Miaflower crafts and circled but with my nesties on a Kraft base card. Wow think I have all the elements covered.
Hope you like and would love you to come and join us again this week. All you need is a cute image and put a button on it how hard is that.
Thanks for popping by and have a good weekend off to walk the dog now.
