Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group July Challenge - Buttons and bows

Today is the start of the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group Monthly Challenge.

The topic for the challenge this month is "BUTTONS AND BOWS".

I decided to play along with their challenge this month.
For my card I have used one the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Sakura".  I have coloured her in with Promarkers and distressed the edge of the image with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and inked with a yellow chalk ink pad.

The papers I have used are from a Debbi Moore magazine.

I put a piece of white card through my Grand Calibur with a button mask I had.  I then kept the mask on top and coloured through with a bright yellow Pan Pastel.

I have finished the card off with various die-cuts (buttons, butterfly and spider's web), lace, ribbon and stamped sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
