Shrink Fun

Afternoon All
After fighting with the security on my computer, and clearing the old shed out ready to knock it down, I am finally ready to post my newest DT card for Here Come The Boys. This time round the challenge is to include 'Buttons' on your male orientated creation.
This is a card I made in one of my classes using the Stampin' Up Circle Circus set. I have used some of the stamps to create the background, and then have stamped on to Shrink Plastic, cut them out with various punches, added eyelet holes, so once shrunk, they formed matching buttons to my background. Finally I have hand stitched the buttons in place.

I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges;
Addicted to CAS - birhday
Catch The Bug - bingo (button, die cut, sewing)
Delightful Challenges - bingo (buttons, tag, stitching)
Creative Moments - circles
Thanks so much for looking,
Hugs Sharon xx
