For this week's Crafty Secret Challenge, to use a handmade embellishment.
The image was water colored with Tombow Markers and matted on Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Circles. I had already sewn the lace to the card, and decided to use the same lace for my embellishment. I basted along the length of the lace, pulled the thread tight and then tied it off in a circle. The button was threaded down through the back of the card and tied tight to keep it down. All the paper was sponged with Old Paper Distress Ink.
