Week 3: Buttons

Last week I issued myself the challenge to use buttons on a project.  I was really stumped.  I couldn't come up with anything I liked, then I saw the sketch for the final Wee Memories challenge:

Instead of the scallop edge on the sketch, I saw buttons, so I finally had a plan... unfortunately, I didn't finish it in time for the challenge deadline, but here it is -

I stamped Stamping Bella's Aptee'tude and colored her in with my Prismacolors.  Added a couple of punched hearts behind her.  Embossed a white piece which I added some red rhinestones to and matted that on the red patterened paper.  I grabbed some matching buttons from my stash and stiched them on with Maraschino Twine from the Twinery.

For the inside, I used the same pattern paper.  Stamped her in red ink and added the "I Love You" sentiment from Paper Smooches Word Salad.

I missed the Wee Memories deadline, but I'm also playing along with:


I enjoyed breaking out my colored pencils this week.  They tend to get neglected since I'm obsessed with my Copics, so my challenge for next week is to color without Copics.  I have so many items I can color with, I just need to break them out more often!

Have a great week!
