Sweet Stampin' #54!

Welcome to the 54th challenge at the Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog!  This week our theme is BUTTONS & BOWS - yummy!

First, before I share my design team project, I'd like to announce the WINNER of last week's SSCB 1st Birthday Blog Hop Candy ... drum roll please -- and the winner is:  PAULA M.!  Paula, please contact me via e-mail within one week from today to claim your prize!

I LOVE using buttons and bows on my cards ... it doesn't look 'finished' to me unless I do!  I used some sweet stamps sets from Waltzingmouse here along with some gorgeous DSP from Stampin' Up!, vintage lace trim, pearls, glittered heart chipboard, baker's twine and a rusty jingle bell!
