I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Top 3 Favorites

It is a Top 3 Favorite challenge at Fitztown this week.  I love this type of challenge. You pick one  from each row to make your own TOP 3 Favorites and just create your project.   Here are your choices: 

Buttons, Brads, Eyelets 
Ribbon, Fiber / Twine, Lace 
Flowers, Bow, Charm

I chose to use the the items button, ribbon and bow and used an Easter image from Fitztown called Easter 7 along with a digital sentiment from my staff. I thought this was a cute pattern for a Easter gift with the Easter eggs, chick and little basket being part of the card.
