Button Bling

Hello Again
Well, I've gone all blingy today for the latest challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz. This fortnight we would like to see your female orientated cards featuring 'A Button or Two', which was my choice.
I have used a Stampin' Up set - flower shop with the matching punch, to create my flowers, simply stamped in Archival Black then finished with a crystal flower shaped button sewn into the middle of each one. The card was completed with the addition of a simple sentiment. The photo really does not show the card at its best, as in real life it is sooooo sparkly.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Moo Mania - floral
Tuesday Throwdown - anything goes
Cards In Envy - birthday card
Crafty Boots - monochrome
Eureka Stamp - add some bling
Penny Black and More - birthdays
and
Fantasy Stampers - monochrome
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope it has inspired you to join in the fun over at the main blog,
Hope to see you again really soon,
Hugs Sharon xx

Fore

Hello
Thanks for popping by. This card is for the latest challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz this week, and this time round we would like you to use just 'Black and White'.
My card has been created with a single stamp from IndigoBlu. I have stamped it once, then stamped the golfer again and decoupaged it on to the original. This has then been matted and layered onto black,then onto another white layer with a die cut Tim Holtz diamond pattern to represent the jumper pattern, before a final black layer before being mounted on the card blank.
I adore the definition element of this stamp, it makes me chuckle every time I look at it.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
A Bit More Time To Craft - anything goes
Crafts Galore Encore - anything goes
