C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 45 - Buttons

Challenge 45 at C.R.A.F.T. is buttons. I'm sure everyone has lots of buttons, so add them onto your creation wherever you like. We're being sponsored this week by Claire at Hope Jacare Doodles, and the prize is........BUTTONS - lots of gorgeous buttons! Most of the DT have used Claire's images this week. Mine is Clara Cupcake, isn't she fab?
I've used a DL card this week, for the first time in ages. I felt Clara suited this shape for some reason lol. She's coloured with promarkers. The hearts round her dress and her hairband have red Stickles on them, and I've added Glossy Accents to the icing on the cupcake. I've put 6 yellow Papermania buttons in her hair, I wanted to do something different with the buttons! The edges are inked with Adirondack. She's been matted onto pink card which has been punched at the side with a Martha Stewart fan punch. The dp is The Candy Floss Paper Stack by Wild Rose Studio, which has been punched again with anMS fan punch and matted onto pink card. I've added Glossy Accents to the cupcakes on the dp. Ribbon and sentiment stamp are from stash. Sentiment has been embossed with hot pink embossing powder.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
