Hello my lovely friends, followers and bloggers - I hope you are having a happy week!

Wow - another two weeks have passed already so it must be In The Pink time again!
Huge thanks to everyone who joined in our last challenge - there were over 100 fabulous entries, so do pop over to In The Pink to find out who the Perfect Pinkies are!
Now onto this fortnight's challenge - Christine and I would like to see BUTTONS and / or  BOWS on your creations.  Of course there should also be a large amount of PINK!
I have used Buttons and Bows - but you may struggle to find them all!

The beautiful image is from Leanne Ellis, stamped with Coffee Archival then coloured with Copics.
Nestabilities Lacy Squares die (cut twice, then spliced to create a rectangle).
The flower is a Cuttlebug Poppy die - the top layer is the smallest flower from the TH Tattered Florals die.
Ribbon from Embsay Crafts. Buttons from my button box!
Linen Twine - Stampin' Up.
Tiny tag punch - Woodware.
Spotty paper - Zoe Pearn.
Vintage text stamp - Crafty Individuals. 
Brushed Corduroy and Antique Linen DI.
Machine stitching.

Hugs  ~

Hi Sylvia, oh my this is just gorgeous! I do love the Leanne Ellis images - but don't always know what to do with them. They are bit more 'arty' than I usually go for. Yours is perfectly coloured and the flower in her hair and on the card is gorgeous.

I'd just like to say thank you as well for popping by my blog and leaving the lovely comment on my attempt at pleats and also for emailing the colouring tips. All advice gratefully received!!
