DYSU Challenge #85 and A Blog Hop!!

Good Morning All,
This week over at Do You Stack Up?, we are doing things a little differently. Not only do we have another great challenge for you, but we are also having a blog hop which is being dedicated to the lovely Meredith, who sadly is leaving the team :0(

As you can probably tell from the picture, our theme this week is buttons which means we want to see them somewhere on your creation. This can be button patterned paper, a button image or just plain old buttons as embellishments – the possibilities are endless!!
Our lovely sponsors this week are……

DigiDarla

Digi DarlaWinner's Choice of 5 Digital Images

robyns_fetish

Robyn’s Fetish - Winner's choice of 5 digital stamps

SweetnSassyStamps

Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps - $10 Gift Certificate

And here is my card…………………..

I have used this delightful image called “Angie Angel” from Robyn’s Fetish. The dress, bow and orange stripes on her tights have all been paper pieced and the lovely flowers are in fact buttons that I have had laying around forever and thought I might never get to use!!!



Ingredients:
Medium – Promarkers
Papers – Fist Edition “Boho Chic”
Sentiment – Craftwork Cards
Dies – Memory Box Meridian Border and Tender Leaves
Buttons, pearls and ribbon – stash
Corners – waste from the border

So that’s the challenge details, now on with the Blog Hop details. If you have arrived from Barb's blog, you are on the right track and your next stop is Jan.  If you have just happened upon my post, you need to start at  the beginning.  If you get lost on the way, I have added the full list below:-
Denise - you are here
Jan 
Meredith

So that's all from me today. I hope you enjoy the blog hop and join us for this fun challenge. I also hope you will leave Meredith some love when you get to her blog. We will miss you Meredith and all your gorgeous creations. Take care xxxx
Happy Hopping
Denise xx

This is fabulous Denise - the quirky image is such fun! Love how you've incorporated the flower buttons.
I absolutely love buttons, but I have a friend who has a button phobia (seriously) - she has to remove all buttons from garments which she purchases. Wonder what the name is for button-phobia?!!
