Papertake Weekly GDT - Buttons & Bling!

Good morning Papertakers - hope you are enjoying your week. Here I am today with my second GDT card for Papertake Weekly - thanks so much for your kind comments on my card last week, and for your fab entries to last week's challenge.

This week our theme is

Buttons and Bling

Another great theme, I'm sure you'll agree!

Don't forget to check out the main blog for details of this week's fab sponsor - you've got to be in it to win it!

Alas as guest DT I don't get a sneaky peeky of the other ladies' cards ahead of time, but I'm sure you'll want to check them out as they will be brilliant as always. Here's mine.

I have made this card for a friend at work who has just has a baby last week. She has commissioned baby cards from me in the past, so I thought I would make a speical effort with this one for her! I was supposed to visit last Friday to take this card and a little gift but unfortunately I was full of cold so couldn't go (and still am, even worse luck!) ... but she doesn't know about my blog so I think I'm pretty safe publishing it here.

I absolutely adore these teeny weeny baby-themed charms which I bought from The Hobby House stall last time I went to Port Sunlight craft fair (I already knew then that this lady's baby card would be required in a few months' time lol!)

Stamps: LotV "Surprise Delivery" and "Everyday Sentiement Circles";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Forever Friends;
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; charms and gems from The Hobby House; button from The Ribbon Girl; ribbon from Hobbycraft;
Tools: large and lacy circle nestabilities; Martha Stewart "Eyelet lace" PATP; Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch.

I also made a box for this card as I hope it will be a keepsake. I will be putting a panel on the lid with the baby's printed details (name, date, weight) .. but here is a pic of the decorated lid before personalisation ... the little letters on the building blocks are sparkly which the phto doesn't really pick up (oh when will light spring days be here ???).


Deep Ocean #45 - The Letter "B"
(Baby, Bear, Blue, Bow, Bottle, Bling, Box)
Shabby Tea Toom #154 - Aqua + Brown + a Silver Element
Cutie Pie #38 - Pretty Pastels
Crafty Ribbons #39 - Button Up
Dream Valley #51 - Ribbon & Bling
Bearly Mine #74 - Ribbon / Lace / Twine
(I have used ribbon and a teeny bit of twine)
Whimsy #56 - Add Some Metal
Stamp With Stampavie #187 - Lots of Layers

Well I guess that's enough cuteness from me for today .. hope you can join in with this week's PTW challenge. Thanks for visiting.
