Button It!!!

Morning! I'm finally here with a little something! I love having my kids home for the holidays, but it plays havoc with my craft time. I actually didn't think I'd get a card done for this weeks challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers, but I managed to grab a few minutes to create! Unfortunately it's not one of my best efforts and time didn't allow for me to remake, but anyhow, this blog isn't about only showing my hits, it's also about my disasters (wouldn't put this card in that category, but it's defo not up there in the faves!!).

Anyway, lets get onto the challenge! This week we are sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps who have generously donated a grab bag of 3 rubber stamps as the prize. The theme is Buttons, so we want to see lots of lovely buttons on your projects. Oh and before I forget, this week is the last of our fortnightly challenges! As of next week we will be weekly, so I do hope that you will be able to join us.

So finally, onto my card..... grab your sunnies cos it's bright and bold using patterned papers which is wayyyyy outta my comfort zone!!!

Image - Cheshire Cat Illusion
Papers - Basic Grey
Tim Holtz On The Edge Alterations Sizzix Die
Glossy Accents
Ribbon from stash
