Happy Birthday Germaine (no peeking!)

It's my pal Germaine's birthday next Tuesday (it's mine and my son's also) and I know she likes purples and oriental so thought this lovely image from Mo's would be perfect. Yes I know the Japanese script is on it's side but I had started to cut the paper before I planned the card - typical me!

I cut the shape using a nestie and left the die on while I dusted round the edge with Dusty Concord Distress Inks to look like another layer. I only had one purple button and you would have had a hoot watching me scouring the house for a shirt or blouse I could cut buttons off, but alas I could not find any with suitable coloured buttons. I used a border punch which also embosses to create a lovely edge to the oriental paper.

I am entering this card into 3 challenges.

Challenge 1. Crafty Catz - Buttons & Bows
Challenge 2. Passion for Promarkers - Buttons and Bows
Challenge 3. Totally Papercrafts - Buttons & Bows
Challenge 4. One Stop Craft Challenge - Sketch
