Digistamps4Joy Challenge #42 - Cute as a Button

Hi everyone, it is once again time for another Digistamps4Joy challenge. The theme of our challenge for this next two weeks is Cute as a Button. Yup, we want you to use a button or buttons on your project! This was a really difficult challenge for me because I just don’t use buttons on my creations. I’ve just never been able to find any that I liked enough to put on my cards. So I took myself down to my local WalMart and bought a nice bag full of different buttons. There were blue one’s and purple, pink, yellow, orange, green…wow…just so many different colors and styles. And guess what, I found some that I liked for my creation. Here’s what I came up with.

The wonderful image I got to play with this time is called Karaoke Kim and I just love her. She's part of our new reveal of images that we had on Sunday. If you haven't been to our store lately, you might want to go and check out all of the incredible images that have been added lately. You can also see all of the images that were released on Sunday on our blog. Karaoke Kim was such a fun image to colour and design a card for. She was just perfect to go with my green leopard print paper from Recolletions that I had bought a while back. I paired that up with some wonderful orange cs from SU and a great dp that was white, orange and pink with music notes on it that I found about a year ago at our local dollar store. I coloured her with my Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and then took my pink metallic gel pen and put notes on her capris and pink squiggles on her top and dots on her shoes and headband. I added a little green flat backed pearl from Recolletions in each corner and used my Scalloped Nestibility to frame her. Instead of making a card with her, this time I decided to do a fat page. If you've never tried one of these you should give it a shot...they're lots of fun and so easy to make. I printed up the sentiment on my computer and added the little notes in the corners with a black marker. The orange ribbon was some I found in the sale bin at Wal-Mart. I distressed around Karaoke Kim with pink pastels from SU.

If you'd like to join us for this fun challenge, just head over to our blog and check out all the rules and prizes. And while you're there, check out all of the incredible creations that my team mates have made.
