Fusion #7, CFC130

Hello everyone! Here's my take on three challenges today.

Sketch is from the Fusion #7 challenge.

Designer paper is from the Pintery 6 x 6 paper pad from Hobby Lobby. I stamped the dress form from TAC directly onto the dp and then later came back and added a bit of shading with a Copic marker, being very careful not smudge the black ink.

I used two shades of Retro cardstock from Paper Pizazz to layer the black designer paper, the oval and to make the buttons. I used the plain button die from Papertrey, Ink. I added some DMC black floss to tie little bows onto them. This took me as long to do as it did the whole darn card!

CAS-UAL Fridays challenge is to use an oval and this sketch just happen to have one!
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday anything goes with buttons challenge.

Okay, Mr. Postman just delivered some new stamps so I'm going to go play some more! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
