I gave in to temptation. I think it had something to do with the fact that it was the middle of the night and I could not sleep. I was flipping thru my e-mails and saw that there was free shipping on Two Peas. I popped over to the store and was casually looking around when I saw what I have been coveting for what must be months now...Cosmo Cricket Togetherness! Yes, I have seen it on many of your blogs and it called out to me. I have been trying to use up my stash though, so I told myself that I could not have it. 3 am and free shipping changed all that.
Now on to what inspired this card. I started out making a card for the latest guest blogger challenge on Yvonne Yam's blog Do More With Less - ribbon. Well, I have wanted to incorporate more buttons with a ruffled ribbon, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I failed to read the fine print however (or I forgot the fine print) - no stamping!!! Yikes, that really is a challenge and I failed :>( That does not mean that you still can't give it a try so head on over there and see what you can put together by noon on Friday Nov. 5th.
My card is also for the following challenges:
Card Patterns - sketch
Paper Players - Anything Goes
Wee Memories - Anything Goes
Have a great Friday!
Details: Stamp - Many Blessings (Verve), PP - Togetherness (Cosmo Cricket), CS - Vintage Cream (PTI), Buttons - Ocean Tides (PTI), Copics, Ink - Blue Bayou & Chocolate Chip (SU), thread and embroidery floss.
