Retro challenge - Buttons and/or Brads at Southern Girls Challenge!

Happy Australia Day. I am having a bit of a slack day hence why my post is late... found a great book to read so read half of it this morning.
Anyway, our new challenge at Southern Girls is Buttons and/or Brads (something I think we all have in our craft stash. I personally have an addiction to Buttons and flowers so this was an easy one for me..
We have two wonderful sponsors this challenge


This was my second attempt at colouring this image, I originally coloured the hair but it looked rubbish so decided to leave it as is. I used twinkling H20's to colour the image (something I don't use very often) I created the paper with some digi papers I have in my digi stash, then I added all the embellishments.
It's a nice easy challenge so be sure to join us at Southern Girls challenge. be sure to pop over to he blog to see what the rest of the DT have created...
