Let the Challenges Begin!!
I am finally working on challenges again! I was out of town for 3 days, brought my granddaughter back with me and she stayed a week at the same time I was taking a
class from Jessica Sprague. Left me no time or energy to work on cards!! So my card today
starts with a base of CTMH Sunflower cs, used a Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder on it. Used a 1.25" McGill circle punch on CTMH Birthday Bash dp and used a circle cutter from Creative Memories to cut the other circles at around 2" also on the Birthday Bash paper. Cut a 1.5" strip from Colorbok Paper Pack in green. Used the Martha Stewart Doily Punch on both sides of the strip to make my ribbon. I used CTMH Simple Stitches acrylic stamp set with CTMH Evergreen embossing powder and Super Emboss Stamp Pad from Personal Stamp Exchange to make my faux stitching on my ribbon. Next I stamped a butterfly from CTMH Bold Butterflies wood mounted stamp set with Kaleidacolor Pastel stamp pad, and finally used embellies from Bead Design gemstones. I made my button out of the 1.25 circle, punched two holes in it and threaded CTMH Sunflower and Holiday Red Ribbon through it.
