Our challenge for today comes from sweet Christi - she asked us to make a 3x3 card that including a button. I loved this challenge!! 3x3 cards are so fun to make and I love buttons!!
I used the cute little row of coffee cups from the Paper Pretties' set Look Who's Perky. And look - I did a monochromatic card - wow!! LOL! I think I'll make a few more of these - what a great little card to send to a friend! Oh the inside reads "for the chat."
The button is one I've had in my sewing stash for years - it was a shank style button with the center being red. The center shank just popped out and I was able to fold the ribbon in half, roll it a bit and put it through the hole of the button - pretty neat! I just remembered that I was going to stitch the bottom of the dp to the card - shoot . . . must have gotten distracted! ha ha!
Thanks for stopping in for a visit - check out the other Prettie Girls' cards, I can't wait to! ETA: I forgot to add that it's my turn to post the challenge!! I'm going to give a shameless plug here to my little blogger, Emma. If you check out her latest post she's issued a challenge hoping other children would play along, but I'm also going to ask the Prettie Girls to play along!! I'll also have my girls make new cards for the challenge. So hop over to Emma's Fun Place and check out your challenge! :)
