Cute As A Button

Welcome!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I know I did.  I totally OD'd on auctions!  I attended two in the Sacramento area on Sunday and enjoyed a great evening of cropping with my wonderful friends on Friday.   What could be better than that!  :D

 I want to share a card I created for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge.   Our challenge is always "Anything Goes" but the twist is optional.   What is the twist?   Add a button!  

I used an adorable digital image from I Brake For Stamps called Teddy Bear.   I used the stippling technique taught by Suzanne Dean for creating the texture of fur.  You may have guessed that fun and whimsical backgrounds and fur are my favorite techniques!    The card was embellished with a button I created from the floer Epiphany punch and the same designer paper I used from my base layer.    

Copics used:
Teddy Bear:  E44, E42, E41, R20 and colorless blender
Bow:  RV00, RV11, RV13
Background: Booo, Boo, W0 and  Opaque white Copic Ink
Base Shadow: W0, W3

I am linking this card with the following wonderful challenges. 

Make it Monday Challenge  - Anything Goes
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
The Outlawz: Twisted Thursday - Anything Goes (tist optonal: add a button)

Thats all I have for today.   Stop by tomorrow for a fun challenge at MarkerPop!
