A Gem of a challenge brads beads buttons and bows

Hello everyone! Goodness it's saturday already and that means it's time for another challenge over at A gem of a challenge which is all the B's! We want you to use brads, beads, buttons and bows on your creations (1, 2 or more if you dare of the 4 items!) Did you enjoy our blog hop? Well pop on over to the challenge blog tomorrow to find out who has won what. The random winner of my candy will be announced tomorrow too when all entries have been checked.
Well, if you saw my WOYWW post you would have seen my pretty Chloe all coloured and ready for my card but alas there was a glue incident coming through the image and I had to start over!! I was going to use the same image but then I came across this adorable Chloe which I haven't used in a while so I inked her instead!!
I have followed the sketch this wk over at sweet sketch wednesday and have used papermania rose garden papers for this card.

I have chose to use a button and bow on my card (no brads or beads here) Both of these are from my stash along with my lace around the image. My flowers are wild orchids with my pink tulips coming from e crafts along with my gold metal scroll corner and my shimmer butterfly which I have edged in stickles (note my new fave toys in the same place on my previous card lol!). My sentiment stamp is crafty sentiments and my image is from the pink gem store. I have given this a vintage look with tea dye distress ink.

Pretty Chloe has been coloured with prisma pencils as per the norm and you may just be able to see my band of pink tulle runnning up behind the image and under the bow!
I would also like to enter this into My time to crafts circles challenge, ABC O is for old fashioned, Paper pretties card for a child, Paper shelters buttons and bows, Charismas spring has sprung, Digi doodles shops best anything goes and delicious doodles glitz, glam and bling challenge.
Thanks for popping by my blog it's lovely having you here! Hope you can join in this time!
Hugs everyone
