Be Happy Be Bright Be You (Cute as a Button image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's my card that made the front cover of Australian Papercraft Essentials. I was so excited as I didn't know that was going to happen until I saw the magazine.

There's a picture of the cover below.

My "job" was to use Cute as a Button images and the lovely Francesca from CAAB let me choose some lovely digis from her shop. I also took the opportunity to advertise my company, Flourish with a Bling by using some of our leaves and pearls.
