Button and Bows on the Dutch Dare

Today a really short post, because I have a million things to do before the girls are getting home from school.
This weeks theme over at the Dutch Dare is: BUTTONS AND BOWS
For my DT-card I used the gorgeous Bittersweet papers from Basic Grey and one of the new Magnolia stamps. The stitching on my card is done by hand, yes I'm completely mad, but since I'm a real nerd with sewingmachines it's the only way if I want them on my card. I'm not going to do this on every card, because it took me over 2 hours to do this.
I've used the great sketch over at Friday Sketchers for my card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
xoxo Karin

Hi Karin,

What a lovely card. I just love these papers - I am still trying to track them down! I am hoping that when Valentines Day is over that there will be some more of them around. This little Tilda is soo cute and you have coloured her in perfectly.

Have a great weekend.
