Buttons and Bows Challenge

Hello my friends.  It's time for another challenge for the Sunshine Mail Foundation.  This month's sponsor is Red Rubber Designs and the challenge is buttons and bows and who doesn't have tons of these fun items hanging around?  I know I have WAY more than I should so it was fun to work on this challenge. 

The buttons and bows challenge will run through the end of February.  We hope you join us by linking up your fun creations to the Sunshine Mail Challenge blog.  In order to be eligible for prizes ($10 gift certificate to Red Rubber Designs) you must send your card to the  Sunshine Mail Foundation

Red Rubber Designs has the cutest images to work with and the stamp set I used for my card is one of their featured stamps for the month called 'Wonder and Joy' - it's an unmounted stamp set with 10 stamps (both images and sentiments).

As part of the Sunshine Mail Design Team I'm posting the card (finished size 5x5) I made for the buttons and bows challenge.   This image was a lot of fun to color with my COPIC markers (see list of markers used below).  The patterned papers used are from the 'DeLovely' paper pad from Cosmo Cricket.  The buttons and bow are from my stash.
