Buttons & Bows

Today it's back to team B at Diva's and a new challenge theme of

Buttons & Bows

A great theme and one that lends itself so well to ladies/girly cards.  Me being me though I decided to do something different!

So here is my male card!

The card was inspired by Lisa of You Made Me Ink - great blog name and a super card idea wouldn't you say.  Lisa's card can be found here and she said it was ok for me to pinch her idea - thanks Lisa!

Sponsoring the challenge this time around is Iva Nova Chest who have a lovely prize lined up for our winner.

Janice!!! It's sensational :D I'm loving the buttons on here. That REALLY seals the deal and your bow looks waaaay better than mine turned out. Very crisp, clean and manly. Excellent take for this challenge and truly a creative way to think out of the box. Your card is perfection!
Hugs to you and thanks so much for the very sweet comments :)
