Pretty little buttons

all  in a row...

Well it's Sketchie day over on Craft Bubble in the CMLI group and thie week has been set by none other than our very own Purple Princess. There is a sketch to follow and the theme is Monochromatic and Masculine....wow there's a toughie!! I already used up my good ideas for this on my ff card earlier this week!

Anyway after racking my brain, whilst in the shower I had an epiphany! I think it was looking at the shower curtain that did it!

Tim Holtz 'tumbled glass' distress inks
Pink Petticoat paper scraps
Ribbons/Buttons from stash
Images from Magnolia
? Nellie Snellen sentiment die
Sentiment by Kraftin Kimmie
