Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge - Buttons Galore

Our new challenge over at the Wags 'n Whiskers blog has just started and this week I am your host :-) I would like to see buttons on your cards - you can use them in the centers of flowers, the corners of your cards or get really creative with them! Be sure to check out the teams inspirational creations!

We have some fabulous news too this week in that the very talented Sharon Caudle - Grandma's House of Cards joins our team. Welcome Sharon!

Now to tell you about my card. The image is Budding Artist featuring Danni and her sweet kitty Bella. My image is stamped in Memento and coloured with Prismacolor pencils with Sansodor and paper stumps to blend. Love the papers? They are from Crate paper Cottage Collection. This is the first time I have worked with this brand and I have to say they are fabulous! Fantastic quality and I love the vibrant colours in this collection. The papers are also double sided which is a bonus. You can find Crate Paper in collection Cottage, Season and Bliss and lots of buttons over in my store.

If you haven't entered my candy be sure to check out my post below :-)

Have a wonderful weekend and i'll be back Sunday!

Hugs,

Love your card Nikki. A great challenge. I love putting buttons on my card. It is a perfect embellishment to give it that something extra special. Your coloring and design of the card is fantastic. I love the bright colors you chose. Perfect for that stamp image. Love those photo corners too. Have a wonderful day!
