 Craft Your Passion is hosting a challenge - "Buttons and Bows" and I have chosen the image "Hugo" from Stamp Fairy for my card.  I printed out two versions and I added a 2nd layer of a ball and of Hugo's head which I mounted on an Action  Wobble - a special spring (see photo below left). This makes the head wiggle-wobble back and forth when moved.  Love those things - they are sooo cute for kids, and most adults enjoy it too.  I sewed red waxed linen thru the buttons and tied a bow with the ends on each. Inside is below right.

This card should be eligible for the following
MarkerPOP #7 - Color Something
Sassy Cheryl #133 - Use a Die Cut (circle tag & inside shape is from Tim Holtz Dye)
Simon Says - Emboss It (sentiments and Hugo's nose have been heat embossed.)
Divas by Design #53 - Lovely Layers (Background DP, tag, panel behind Hugo and two layers of Hugo and ball, both fussy cut)
Totally Paper Crafts #135 - For a Child
One Stitch at a Time #132 - BINGO (Buttons, Digi & Sentiment)

IMAGES:  The focal image is "Hugo" by Stamp Fairy
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is from 7 Gypsies from the "Journey " collection; base CS is from stash.
EMBELLISHMENTS:  Sentiment on the front is on two punches from Stampin' Up and "Wish" is a self inking "Mini Word"; sentiment on the punched circle tab is a digi - source unknown; although the original Hugo image shows the bounce lines, I had to hand draw the lines with a Micron pen and a white pen since I had fussy cut out the dog.
INKS: the image was printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics:

May you color with abandon, create wildly
and always, always, make what amuses you!
