Karens Doodles 12th challenge



It's time for a new challenge at Karen's Doodles UK and this week it's all about buttons & bows. This should have been easy, but it was sooo hot when I was making my card I just couldn't think and couldn't create a thing - I ended up nearly in tears trying to make the bloomin' thing, how silly is that?! I can't believe I got myself in such a state over such a simple card! I do quite like it now it's done though, and thankfully it's now cooled down and is actually a bit chilly today - I bet most of you think I'm mad wishing the sun away don't you lol?

I've used this adorable little sailor boy available here, coloured with promarkers. The paper is printed from the new Bearly Mine 'just plaids' download, onto linen card again, with brown coredinations and blue linen card from my stash. Papermania spotty buttons, ribbon from my stash, bow tied with my bow-easy - it still looks messy, I'm rubbish at bows! The sentiment is a Papermania stamp.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
