Hope you had a wonderful weekend! This week's challenge over @ "The Next Level" is an easy one! That should get everyone over there to enter! All you need to do is create a card with BUTTONS and BOWS.
Please make sure and check out all of TNL DT's cards. They are soooo cute!
Mine is done with a cute little "Stampin Up" teddy bear that already comes with a button and a bow. I stamped him on cream colored cardstock. There is no white on this card.
Then I was lucky enough to find this awesome crochet lace and buttons trim and based my colors for the card off of it. Check out the cute little button brads that I used for my flower centers too.
The cardstocks used on this one are Bazzill Dots, Core'dinations, and DCWV. I do not know the DP. It was from my scrap bin... sorry.
I am also entering this card in: Cute Card Thursday Challenge 67 - Stitch in Time! They want to see some kind of stitching real or faux. As you all know...I always stitch my cards! I can't help myself! LOL! Charisma Cardz Challenge 26 - Buttons I think this card meets that requirement too! LOL! Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge 39- 3 Ribbons. They can be alike or different but you have to have 3. I used my 3 ribbons in the form of bows. The Pink Elephant Challenge 21 - Use your favorite color combo. I go thru stages! Right now, it is purple and green which are the main colors on this card. Pile It On- Use 3 different types of embellishments and enter multiple challenges. I used bows, buttons, and flowers, and am in multiple challenges! This card also fits into "Simon Says Challenge" where they are asking you to paper piece a non colored part of your image. The teddy's bow, feet and paw are all pieced from the same purple paper as the rectangular piece the lace trim is on.
This week's comment candy is a surprise grab bag!
It will be well worth the time it takes to leave a quick message. I can tell you that one of the items in the grab bag will be a piece of this awesome button trim like I used on my card, so you can come up with your own special button creation! ALL you have to do to have a chance at winning is to leave a comment about this card! Just my way of saying THANKS for taking the time to make a card artist's day! I will post the winner the evening of Sunday, July 12th.
