The Show “Moost” Go On!

Hi everyone!

It’s challenge time again over on the Riley and Company blog. This week I am hosting the challenge which is Buttons and Bows!  You need to use buttons and bows on your card/project.

Normally when I used ribbon and buttons I add them to my card rather than my image, but when I looked at this adorable Juggling Riley I could see him juggling buttons instead of the balls he is normally juggling. So I found three colored buttons that were about the size of the balls and threaded them with twine to match the buttons, tying each piece of thread into bows!

I used a recent TESC139 sketch for the layout of my card.

Here is the inside of my card. I stamped Juggling Riley again and added one of the sentiments from the Circus Words set.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Design Teams blogs today so see what they created for this challenge.
