Top Tip Tuesday

I hope you enjoyed our last challenge. This fortnight it is Annette who is our host. 

Our Sponsor is Sami Stamps

Our challenge at Top Tip Tuesday is:-

Nice and easy.

I have used one of Sami stamps images Balloon Puppy to make this buckle card.

I coloured  this with Promarkers, cut frame and border with Nestie labels, LOTV Nit Wit papers, Glossy Accents on the balloon, Liquid Pearls, Britannia flower and leaf dies. I added a little hand stitching for texture.

We have a great tutorial to show how this buckle card is made. 
Look forward to seeing all those cute creations.
