Buttons & Bows

We are now on our fourth Challenge at Paper Romance - Whooo Hooo!!!  Thanks to those who've joined us so far : )  We enjoy seeing what you create!

This week, Amy has challenged us to use buttons and bows on our projects.  Here's what I came up with:

I've used this FUN stamp by High Hopes.  It actually is in two pieces - Aunt Can't Canning Jar and Jar Topper.  I stamped with Memento Ink, colored the Jar Topper with copics (B34 B32 B00) and cut out.  To fill the jar with M&Ms, I stamped with various colors and punched them out with a very old circle punch  by Uchida.  The stamp is a little bit bigger than the punch, but this was the closest I had. So then I glued them in place and....

Covered the M&Ms with Diamond Glaze!!!  Yes!  I LOVE this stuff!  It gives 'shiny things' so much more dimension : )  The circle and scalloped circle are cut out with my nesties - I would be lost without these...  The flowers are from Petaloo called Color Me Crazy.  You could color these any color to match your project, but I wanted to keep them white so they would blend in with the background.  .  The sentiment is another 'oldie' I dug up.  My friend gave it to me years ago : )  It's by Annette Allen Watkins.  Oh, I also used my copic marker to color the thread I used for the buttons.  I love my markers!!!  Did ya notice the lil' pearls I added to two of the corners?  I used Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White.  I am really lovin this stuff.  At first I was a little bit intimidated to put it directly on my card, but now I can do it with my eyes closed.  Oops... my nose just got longer hee hee!
