Truly Scrumptious Challenge #2

This is the sketch for this weeks Truly Scrumptious Challenge. I do enjoy these sketches, they make life so much easier and to make it more interesting they have an added element this week which is using handmade buttons.

I made my card using Basic Grey papers again as I really love the colours of these ones and the image is 'Tilda with Bird' which I always seem to colour in Green for some reason. I think this is the third time I have used her and coloured her the same colours, but I think she suits them. I have also substituted the bird for a butterfly.

My homemade buttons are just punched circles, with two holes punched in the centre and threaded, I layered approx 3/4 circles on top of each other to make them thicker, although you wouldn't know it from the photo!

Everything else is from my stash.
Thank you for looking.

Hi Michele,
Just a quick message to say thank you so much for the lovely flowers you sent me for my birthday and the beautiful card. I'm sorry I haven't got round to thanking you before now but I have been incredibly busy with a large history project.
So, thank you again - I really appreciate it!
Love, Georgia xx
