Buttons and Bows for MDUC

Welcome back, it's Sunday and this week it is my groups turn over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges. Our challenge this week is o use flowers, buttons and bows, your creation much contain a little of each! Our sponsor for this week is Michelle's scrapbooking and more and they are giving a $10 voucher to the winner! Well, the flowers on my card are obvious, the glittery little lady bug on the flower is a button, it had a shank on the back which I just cut off and it went perfectly with these papers I already had, and as for the bow, there is a bot of bow action going on under the flowers, unfortunately you can't tell because I got a bit excited with the flower component of the challenge, lol. I have inked up my adorable little 60's Tilda, she is one of my favourites, who really is as cute as a bug. You can't see it at all in the pic but I have glittered the edges of all the petals and the lady bugs on my DP are glittery too, so I have a whole glitter thing going on that did not show up at all, bugger! I think the only way to get a good pic where you can actually see the glitter is to take a horrible over exposed shot with the flash on, I guess you will just have to imagine it :)
Thank you for taking a look and all your wonderful comments :) I am leaving for holidays tomorrow so I apologize if I cannot get around to comment on everyones blogs over the next week, I do not know if I will have any internet access, gasp!!
