So Happy For You...

Hi Ya!  Here with a card for the current Paper Players challenge (#55) to use the following colors:  Baja Breeze, Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake & Basic Grey.   I combined the challenge with the current sketch from Sketchbook Saturday.  The stamps I used are from the really cute Stampin Up! set Sew Suite.  The buttons were made using my Sizzix Sweet Buttons die.  Lots of stamping, trimming and ink distressing on this one.  Overall I like how it turned out, but I'm not happy with the photo.  It is a somewhat overcast day today and getting a decent photo was really hard.  I'm also going to put this card into the current JUGs technique challenge to make your own buttons. 


Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Basic Grey & Crumb Cake; Poppy Parade & Baja Breeze dp; Dies:  Spellbinders plain & scallop circle dies; Sizzix die; Ink:  Ancient Page grey, Hero Hues Punch; SU! Crumb Cake & Baja Breeze, Ranger Old Paper Distress ink; Stamps:  SU! Sew Suite & So Happy For You.

Rosemary, this card is fabulous. I love your handcrafted buttons and this is a fabulous use of the color challenge. You really rocked the layout, too. All the distressing and cutting was worth it. So glad you shared it with the Paper Players
