Not quite as well planned out as I'd intended

Well this card has turned out OK, despite all the things that deviated from my original plan!

Firstly, I had not intended to make a Christmas card, but realised it was a Christmassy image, and not a 'spring lamb' themed card when I got around to colouring the poinsettia in Tilda's hair.  I should have realised when I pulled the image out from my Christmas folder, but no, I was obviously thinking about something else at the time.

Then, to top it off, the card was meant to be my DT creation for the new Crafty Little Fairies 'button' challenge, and the As You Like It Challenge 'stitching' challenge, both of which start today.  (Yes I was being lazy and intended to cover both challenges with one creation.)

So, on the basis of this covering both a stitching and a buttons challenge, guess which TWO elements I forgot to add when I got carried away in the assembly of my card?

Yup, both the stitching and the button!

So, before the image stuck down firmly, I carefully peeled it off, and stitched around the circle panel (cursing that I'd cut it as a circle and not a square), and then popped a button on top of the bow with some twine.  Although this was not planned, I actually quite like the combo of bow / button / twine.

It looks like I might have made a recovery from my bout of numptiness.   (Just!)

Hi Nutty Netty, you always make us giggle. If you had coloured the flower with purple or pink, it could have been a Clematis! Great card though! Hugs, Carol S.xx

You know we would have been none the wiser if you didn't tell us! It's more fun that you did though and I'm glad you salvaged it. The end result is truly lovely :-)

Gorgeous card, Annette. Love this adorable Tilda image. Beautiful design on the DP. I chuckled over your cursing over the sewing of a circle instead of a square--feel the same way...hee hee--but you did a perfect job there.
Thanks for coming over to play with us at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.
