Getting ahead!

I used this super cute image from Bee Crafty.They were giving it away as a freebie.They’ve been coloured with Promarkers.The sentiment is part of  a past freebie by Pollycraft.The papers are K & Co and the card is the gorgeous,shimmery Gemstones by Core’dinations.The buttons are a selection from my Bag- o-Buttons by Autumn Leaves.The ribbon is from my birthday cake ( which was earlier this month).I echoed the sketch on the bottom of this easel card.I used a Lip Pattern corner punch,a Square Nellie’s Multi Frame Die to cut the piece the image is on and a Sizzix Lace Edging Decorative Strip.I made the border deeper on the top section by adding an extra piece of card and hid the join with the ribbon.

Eeek!I’ve used THREE buttons on this card!I always have mixed emotions about using them.I LOVE using them but I HATE giving them away.Still,at least we won’t drown in the ever increasing sea of them in our house and it will give me the perfect excuse to buy some more!!
