Buttons and bows

After my marathon masculine card making frenzy its been a pleasure to make something a bit more feminine. I had seen a lovely card made by Avril for the Alphabet challenge and it inspired me to get going. I loved how she had sewn round all her layers but I don't have room to keep my sewing machine out and it was too much effort to drag it out so I paper pierced all my layers( can't see it very well on here) I had seen Sue Wilson on create and craft using the Tim Holtz piercing ruler and I have had mine for ages and never used it so had a go at that, very quick and easy. I also cased her idea for using the memory box chloe die, thanks Avril !
