PPA#3-Flowered Buttons


I had fun with this week's Inspiration Challange at PPA here. We were supposed to use a Pottery Barn picture as the Inspiration. Since my favorite colors are mostly in the Bold Brights, this was right up my alley! And, as I promised, I incorporated the Playground and Sherbet buttons that are on special (this post here) into this card. Even though I used 4 stamp sets and lots of accessories on this card it came together pretty quickly. One tip, I used really,really thin scraps of paper to "thread" the buttons. Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Always, Eastern Blooms, Enjoy Every Moment, Smarty Pants
Papers: Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Razzleberry Lemonade
Inks: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Write Markers, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise Classic Stampin' Pads
Accessories: Designer Buttons Playground and Sherbet, Bold Brights Brads, Bigz Scallop Circles #2 die, 1/2 inch circle punch, 1 inch circle punch, 1 1/4 inch circle punch, Glue dots, Stampin' dimensionals
