Truly Scrumptious - Hidden Message

As soon as I saw the challenge over at Truly Scrumptious this week I have been itching to have a go
There is a fab sketch to follow with a twist..........the sketch has a hidden tag where you put a message
So here is my entry

I have used 'Football Miki' and coloured him with ProMarkers
I tried something different today by making my own buttons from a Football stamp a few layers of card and 'Glossy Accents'.
I saw this done on a tutorial you can see it here......and I instantly fell in love with the idea
I just love how they turned out and will definately be making more in all sorts of colour shapes and sizes lol!

P.S. Do you mind me asking what you printed your Pink Petticoat pattern onto? It's got a lovely texture.

Oh this is so cute, fabulous card Janet and I love those buttons.

Beth said...

Hi again JAnet, thanks for the tip, I'll have a look for some (any excuse to shop for stash!) For the circle card, before I decorated the front, I put it on my craft mat and aligned the fold with the grid, then cut a little sliver off the bottom of the back of the card leaving a straight edge for it to rest on, I hope that makes sense!

Love Beth xx
