A New Chapter Begins!

My gorgeous baby has had her first day at secondary school and she loved it,isn't it wonderful to watch your child grow into a confident individual,she never ceases to amaze me and seems fazed by nothing I am a very proud mum,I have 3 lovely children!
This evening I put together this little card,just one to have by me, a just in case creation,I used my gorjuss girl which I coloured originally for my toadstool card but then decided that it looked completely the wrong colour for it. I threaded some tiny seed beads onto a length of wire for my girl to balance on,I have hundreds of them and thought it was about time I used a few I'm in great need of sorting my stash and I'm bound to come across more than a few more!


I made another of my ribbon flowers but this time needed only the one kind of ribbon for it and used a couple of buttons for the flower centre again as I just love the look it gives,good job I've hundreds of these too lol!


There are several challenges that I'm going to use this for:-
Papertake Weekly Challenge,Just the one (I've made 1 flower)
YNS challenge 24,Anything goes,
Tuesday throwdown 15,Ribbon with a twist.
I know there's a few more I could probably enter but I think that's enough challenges for me for one day. Talking of challenges,don't forget to make a PINK AND BLACK CARD to enter for Scrapbook Sisters Card challenge launch! You still have over a week to enter this and there's a brilliant prize on offer!
Thanks for stopping by,
Get crafting,
Julie.x

I really like your girl balancing on the beaded string, what a clever idea. Your ribbon flower is so pretty, I like the layered up button too. I've never been much of a button person but I'm starting to get into them.
