Cute As A Button Progressive Facebook Challenge

Just popping in quickly today to share my take
on using the beautiful image Angelica - The Bride of Christ from


This is the image for this month's


I did not embellish my card with much as I
feel the image really doesn't need much.
It is quite lovely as it is.
I colored mine with Spectrum Noir Markers and fussy cut.
I added a little glitter glue and Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to the dress.
The background was embossed with a
Crafter's Companion 3D Embossing Folder.
Stamped the sentiment and used a tag punch for the tag.
Ribbon and some gems complete.

We would love for you to participate with us!

Eileen is always remembered by the DT at Creative Craft Cottage but each year we dedicate a challenge to this brave lady who fought but sadly lost her battle with cancer.  Eileen was the original owner of the blog and this challenge is just for her.  The DT have added a Lavender Ribbon or Bow to their projects as this is the general cancer ribbon colour (This is not an entry requirement)
