Buttons & Bows

I'm just getting in under the wire for this week's A La Card Monkey Challenge! It took me a while to decide what to do. This week's theme is Buttons & Bows, plus the sketch below:

I went into my seemingly never ending supply of "Snoopy" stamps and here's the result:

The basic card is white cardstock from my stash. I added Ice Cream Parlor DSP accented with Marina Mist card stock for the edge trim, the circle behind the image and the scalloped oval. I colored in the image with various markers and added some ribbon from my stash. Snoopy has glitter on his body and a little black pearl for his nose. I used buttons for the balloons that Woodstock & his friends are holding.

Here's a close-up of the image itself:

I used dimensionals to glue down the buttons and to attach the circles & oval. Marina Mist sponged around the edges completes the work.
