Buttons and Bows

Hi Bloggers,

I'm here with a late entry for this week's Out of a Hat Challenge which this week is to incorporate BUTTONS into your creation. Well, I'm not much of a button girl (except when it's the chocolate variety) but I've given it a go.

I was really struggling to find an idea though until I did a bit of googling and came across this YouTube video from the film "Son of Paleface".




Jane Russell's dress became my inspiration ....



I've used Tim Holtz dress form, mini rosette and filmstrip dies, a Stampin Up embossing folder, some ribbon and two buttons!

Okay, thanks for popping by, see ya later!

Suze xx
