Love to Scrap Challenge #26 Buttons and Bows

This biweekly challenge theme over at the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog is "Buttons and Bows". You must use both on your project. Again, we have two sponsors:

Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet ($10 gift certificate)

 
Fresh Squeezed Stamps ( Friendly Folk stamp set)


My image is from Stitchy Bear and is by Ike's Art. I used a packet of images called Holiday Mini Pack ST PATRICK's DAY. It is made up of all of the images that you see (5 in all). St. Patty's Day is just around the corner and I thought it would be fun to play with this image. I chose to do another CAS card:




 
 

I used my Wink Of Stella pens on the shamrocks and Stickles on the eyes for some glitter. The images are colored with copics. The ribbon is from Annabelle Stamps. I used alcohol ink on clear buttons and then covered them with gold stickles after I glued them down. The pot has coins in it, but I thought using the buttons as coins was a way to get them on there. I don't remember where I got the DP. I think I bought it my local scrapbook store, but don't remember the brand.

It is going into the following challenge:
