DT for Fat Pages-Buttons and Bows

its friday!!!!! that can only mean one thing....well two really its the start of the weekedn come 6 oclock lol but also means its challenge time over at Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude

the theme this time is buttons and bows. so hows everyone fixed on getting them buttons and bows at the ready to enter our fantastic challenge?? before you start though lets see who the sponsors are..

firstly we have fresh brewed designs where heather is offering the winner 3 digis of there choice

and finally we have beccy's place where beccy is also offering the winner 3 digs of there choice.

so using the digi magnolia from beccy's place here is what i made...

i coloured the digi using green promarker for the steam and leaves then went round the edges of the petals using a yellow promarker i then added a yellow button for the centre and a gold bow in the middle of the steam. the digi itself is a fat page as it measures 4x4.

i then decided to add it to an altered tin can which i decorated using different shades of yellow paper.
i added yellow ribbon to the top of the can and yellow buttons around the bottom.
i then added a big yellow bow at the side of the digi it another yellow button on.

here is a close up image so you can see the buttons and bows used and a better look at the digi

i hope you like it xx
