The Next Level

Hi all, and Happy Monday.
I'm a tad late posting for the challenge today, up to my neck in wedding favours & place names. Not long now....only FIVE more sleeps. Oh My Gosh.... We've had thunderstorms today, so I hope they pass by the weekend, and it turns sunny, and dry again for Saturday.
Here is my card for this weeks challenge over at The Next Level. It's all about buttons and bows this week. No sketch this time, so lets see what you come up with.

I used one of the new images from Whiff Of Joy... These are so delightful, I adore them. I made a card for a baby boy as you can see, but I didn't want to overpower it with embelishments. I wanted it to remain soft and babylike. I decided to use a sheer ribbon for the bow, then I could make a large bow, but it wouldn't look too heavy...aha method in my madness...On the other end of the scale, I used teeny tiny buttons for the flower centres which kept things delicately balanced. The background was kept simple with some shadow stamping, and a touch of blue paper from HOTP. The sentiment was computer generated.
Hope you like it, and while you're at it why not pop along and see what new look The Next Level is all about.
Happy crafting.
