Bellariffic Friday - Buttons and Bows

It's Friday and that means another Bellariffic Friday!  Today's theme was Buttons and Bows and I made this card specially for Auntie Mollie.  She doesn't like all...ever...never, sooo whenever I make her a card there mustn't be any green on it - a challenge for sure but I like a challenge :)

I stamped Anastasia in Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics.

The paper is Lilybeedesign Buttercup - a sweet little 6 x 6 pad with only blues and yellows.  I used SSSC160 which is long gone but I didn't have a chance to play along, so better late than never.  Anastasia is cut out and popped onto a Vertical Greeting die-namic which I ran through the Big Shot with my SU Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  I used two of the Fishtail Flags Stax and added a trio of buttons tied with baker's twine.  Her glasses are my favourite part of her so I gave them a very generous coating of crystal effects and for a bit of sparkle went over the frame with an Atyou Spica pen.  Come to think of it, I have a pair of readers almost that colour!

I used the Chevron Stripes die-namic for a simple border on the inside of the card.

Happy Birthday Auntie Mollie!
