Daring Cardmakers and .....Kim's Sketch Challenge



Can you tell I want a chance to win the stamps that Kim is giving away. Promise this is the last one, I don't kow keep looking at this card and it is missing something, maybe candles o the cake, hey how about a bow. I am heading to Central Florida on Friday and will be meeting with a couple of my Paper Challenged friends, we will be doing the Christmas Cards that I showed you a couple of weeks ago. I am bringing my camera so hope to have some pictures to show you.

The cake stamp is an Old CTMH stamp, bought it some time ago (couple of years - hate to admit that) and this is the first time I am using it, the buttons are from a great little acrylic stamp set that I just purchased from frugalities, it is a great site, every day they have a different discount. I combined this sketch with Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Who's pushing your buttons!
I know you've all got buttons stashed away somewhere, whether they've been purchased at a cardmaking store or you thriftily snipped them off DH's old shirt. I'd like you to find those buttons and use them somewhere on a card. They can be real buttons, craft shop buttons, die cut buttons, faux buttons or another type of button, surprise us all.

Very cute card! I LOVE buttons, adore them, covet them, and have TONS of them!! I was using them so much that my fellow scrappers who "SAAAYYY" the love and adore me threatened to take away my stash! So, now I can tell them I "have" to use because you said so *wink*

Cheery card, Florence. I have that CTMH stamp, I'll have to go get it out and see what I can do with it. Have fun with your stamping buds

Keri Lee said...

This is super cute!!! I lvoe the colors and the line of stamped buttons! What if you take the "happy birthday to you" and make it a tab along the right edge of the main image. Then move the entire main image to the left and down just a touch. Maybe make two little folded tabs of ribbon coming out from behind the sentiment tab....but really I love the card as is and I wish you the best!!!

Dawn Easton said...
