Cute as a Button

It's a new challenge over at Delicious Doodles Challenges this week. Cute as a button is the theme.
Normally I shy away from cute. WAYYY outside my comfort zone. This image though, the little Pumpkin Fairy, made it so much easier.

Yes the buttons do slide on this shaped penny slider card.
The little fairy herself is coloured using promarkers.
A light touch of glamour dust to her wings and the ribbon round her dress.
Tiny buttons and pearls surround her as well as a couple of pumpkin sequins. Pearls also adorn her hair ribbons.

The paper was part of a kit from Duckpond Crafts.

The base is made from some diecuts I bought cheap at somepoint thinking they might come in handy.
The slider - yet more buttons. This time piled up and tied with lurex thread before attaching to the pennies.
More of those pumpkin sequins, in the smaller size, round the base.

A closeup of this little Pumpkin fairy so you can see her better.

Now it's your turn. After, of course, going and having a good look at the beautiful cards my teamies made as well.

The Challenge

Make or use something cute, as long as there is at least ONE button somewhere!!

There have been a couple of changes to the rules and for a full rundown you'll need to read them at the challenge.
If you do use a Delicious Doodles image - you will get to be 'Spotlighted' on the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog and on the DD Blog and be in for an extra chance to win 5 images of your choice. Hows that for incentive?
So let's see those cute buttony projects.
