Phindy's #63 My Best Friend

Theme at Phindy's Place - button/s

Another Friday and another phab Phindy image, this time called 'Squeezes'. Isn't she adorable? I coloured her with Promarkers (is there anything else I would use? LOL), and I also did a bit of paper piecing. Now, by 'a bit' I mean all her outfit really, so quite a bit of paper piecing. LOL. I decided to use the sketch over at Sketch Saturday for the layout and the sentiment is from TLC. The prerequisite button is a larger than life domed variety with a shank, a left over from a blouse I made many moons ago. Popped it onto a red paper clip as you can see.

I tore the edges of my papers and used Distress Inks too. The stars on the sketch I interpreted as starry flowers which I thought also matched the ones on the background dp rather well and layered them up using Pinflair glue.

Thinking of joining in with our challenge?  Any kind of button will do (why not a few buttons rather than just one), and whilst we would love you to use one of Phindy's images on your card, it isn't strictly necessary but if you do, don't forget to enter your card twice into the challenge to double your chances of winning. Hope to see you there!
