Castle on the hill

A card for the Dutch Dare Challenge which this week is to use buttons (lots of). For my card I've used my 'Castle on the hill' stamp design for Spiral Whisper with Elzybells 'Knight and Princess' and 'a happy ever after' sentiment. The images are coloured with prismacolor pencils and Sansodor. I've added stickles and glossy accents on the castle and the knight's armour. I added the buttons element of the challenge to the path with liquid pearls in between and overflowing on to the sentiment area. The images are matted on Bazzil Bling, white card and Doodlebug paper with green satin ribbons. The Knight and Princess are popped up on dimension tape. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
