Show us your Buttons! Heart2Heart Challenge
I LOVE using buttons on my cards, and CTMH has such a lovely selection right now - gorgeous colours, flower shapes, clear buttons, wooden buttons - just about all you could wish for. We even have a button stamp set (one of my faves!). This week's Heart2Heart Challenge is to use buttons on your card or project, so hop on over to the blog to see what the rest of the design team has come up with - there is some extremely cute & inspiring artwork this week! One of this month's prize sponsors, Angel Shifflet is playing along with us, both she & Sharon Holmes are providing lovely prize packages that will be randomly awarded at the end of the month to two lucky players. We ask that you use mostly CTMH product in the challenge, and if you sneak in a little contra - just be sure to list where it comes from. My card was inspired by one that we made at the Toronto Regionals event hosted by CTMH a few weeks ago, we used the Happy Moments stamp set in several different ways, and I've incorporated a couple of them this week. The background paper is the back side of the butterfly b&t paper in Wings, that I have overstamped with the long border image in Happy Moments, and the flower is made by stamping the flower image 3 times, cutting them out and layering them to make a 3D flower, with the paisley images working as leaves. I don't think it shows up too well in the photo, but I 'bowed' out the sentiment so that it curves away from the card.
