Button Challenge and WOYWW



Hot off the workdesk is a card for Embellish Magazines Button Color Trends Challenge.  I just finished this last night and my desk shows the remants of this card and some others from a card making binge I was on yesterday.  I tried to incorporate buttons into the overall theme of the card instead of just using them as an embellishment.

These stamps just came recently and I have not had a chance to use some of them yet.  Love those little Stampin Up birds, and the Stampedous Polar Bears.  The cards in the pile are for some challenges or experiments with new stamps.  The rest of my desk is just a heap of papers from previous card-nothing of interest to you there!
Here's the colors for the Button Color Challenge, nice and bright.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the creativity over at Julia's Stamping Ground, where every Wed. we show our crafty stuff!

  21. I seriously NEVER show my working area, because I think someone would PASS-OUT at the heaps of stuff I have surrounding me. No JOKE. Ask my husband :)

    Sometimes I have to literally rake it in boxes and move it so that my mind clears...

    Oh..but enough of the confessions...I just wanted to say how much I really enjoy your card!

    Okay...now I will HUSH... :)
