Buttons'n'bows

Here's a quick card for a few challenges:
Colour Create: pink, green and white
Less Is More: ribbon(s)/button(s)
House Mouse and Friends: buttons, bows and bling
Truly Scrumptious: buttons and bows

It's House Mouse and Friends' Monika again, jumping for joy. She's coloured with Copics, as is the green button because I only had pink and clear in my beautiful American Crafts glittery button set. I discovered that really does work - go Copics! The weaving was a little fiddly. Well very fiddly actually, but I worked out a way of peeling back the double-sided tape in sections which made it a lot easier. There's no way I'd be able to explain how, but I peeled them all back from the pointy end to the weave section, then started finishing the job with the long green ribbon, if that helps at all.


While I'm on the subject of House Mouse and Friends, I have an exciting teaser for you! Watch their blog and mine next Monday the 1st September August (thanks for pointing out my stoopid mistake there DH!) and all will become clear. I'm a happy squirrel!
