Hi everyone...guess what, it's time for another super fun blog hop brought to us by DeNami Design!! This month's theme is Buttons & Bows!! Ohhh how I puffy heart me some buttons and bows!

In my opinion everything is better if you have a button or bow ;) but adding both is sure to be uber cuteness!!

You should have arrived here from the seriously talented Pattie Goldman's blog. I bet she had something seriously beautiful!!


All right, now that you have all the details, are you ready to see what I came up with? I really had a hard time deciding what to do. I use buttons quite a bit and ALWAYS seem to have a little bow on my cards, I'm a ribbon-a-holic, lol! I really wanted to do something different than just a normal old card for the hop and after a bit of thinking decided on a matching Easter gift set.
Mason jars are all the rage right now and what better use than for a little Easter treat? Added bonus is that your candy stays fresh, hehehehehe! ;) 
For my card I started out with a white base then layered on a piece of pink cardstock that I had stamped polka dots using the polka dot background stamp. I "colored" in a doily using Momento ink and added the patterned paper flags, tea stained seam binding bow (from Paper Sweeties) and a pretty button. For my focal image I used the darling Easter Chickie Circle (I just noticed that I forgot to color the center of my flowers...sigh!). I finished it all off with a few pieces of sequins (spring mix from Pretty Pink Posh) for a little pop. 
For my jar I used the same focal image, patterned papers and seam binding as on the card. Then added more Spring Mix sequins along with some buttons. Did you notice the little pink flowers inside my buttons and the larger white flower on my jar? That's all part of the Spring Mix...ADORABLE! 
I thought the top needed a little sumthin' sumthin' so I punched put a scallop circle and stamped a dot frame from DeNami along with the small Happy Easter sentiment (I masked the sentiment so it would stack).


Well that's all for me today...off you go now to visit with the talented Donna Bowman! I can't wait to see what she has for us!!

  18. Tina I just KNEW you'd have some amazing eye candy for us, but REAL candy? That, I was not expecting! AWESOME!!!
    You are so good with combing many colors. That card is really good...the LO, the elements, and your coloring are superb. I LIKE the white flower centers...they look great! And the white pom pom trim is the perfect compliment to your jar:)
