Scotland Fiona

Our challenge to you this week at Delightful Challenges is to use buttons.  Just for fun I thought I would use this cute set called Scotland Fiona for my card..  Wendy, the owner of Digital Delights by Louby Loo is originally from Scotland so I hope she isn't too critical about the artistic license I took with the colouring of the skirt on this little cutie.  I don't think it is intended to be a kilt because of the shape of it. The set included a thistle so instead of using it as a separate element on the card, I created the yellow paper with it.

The challenge this week is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who is providing a $20 gift certificate to one randomly chosen winner.


There will also be three top picks chosen by the design team and the number one pick will be invited to be a Guest Designer for one week so we hope you are back in the creating mood after the holidays and will join our Buttons challenge.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Fab 'n' Funky - Anything Goes

Alys Sunday Challenge - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges  - Celebrate Something
