Button it!

Good morning, I'm delighted to be posting my first DT card for the fabulous Fab'n'Funky Challenges! I was so excited to be asked to join this fantastic team! The challenge this week is a fun and easy one...button it- just add a button to your creation. We were given some brilliant images to play with by our lovely sponsors this week, Bugaboo. I chose to use Gus -birthday recount, this  brilliant image really makes me laugh! I coloured him with copics, then cut him out, mangled him a bit with a ball-tool and mounted him on my card using pinflair glue to add some dimension. Glossy accents on his specs. Some buttons and a bit of twine (recycled from a clothing tag!).
Now it's your turn! Just pop over to Fab'n'Funky Challenge blog to check out the wonderful creations from the rest of the team, then click the linky to add your own fabulous make!
Thanks for looking, I'll be back later with another card (two posts in one day! sure doesn't happen too often on this blog!)

Such a fun card Chris - I do love Gus - what a fab (or should that be funky!) make for your first week with us, i just love it. Great recycling! - I've got a box full of recyled rubbish that I'll probably never use - but define rubbish thats what i'd say lol - great to have you on Fab'n'Funky hugs Judith x

Thanks for sharing your project & creativity with us at Aud Sentiments Chris! Love the papers you chose and the layering effect you achieved! And the three 'ribbons' you created under your button adds a lot of interest. Finally, that image is so fun, the glasses are perfect with the Glossy Accents - nicely done!
