Sketch and Product Challenge 25: Buttons!


It's time for another Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge! And the focus this time around is on BUTTONS! Seriously...who doesn't LOVE buttons? :) For my card, I (of course!) used some new Basic Grey! I used papers all from the Lemonade 6x6 Paper Pad, other than the cardstock matting! I used SU Kraft as my card base and Basic Black for the mats for the layers. The stamp set used is Birdie Inspiration from Unity Stamp Co... What a cute, fun set! And you can get it for 20% off this week only!! :) I stamped the frame in Adirondack Pitch Black and the sentiment and bird in Purely Pomegranate. The focus this week was buttons, and I decided to make my own button! I changed the sketch a little bit...there should be three buttons on the bottom right, but I opted for one LARGE button. I made this using the Bazzill Chips - 1 1/4" Circles. I adhered more Lemonade paper to the "button", inked the edges in Purely Pomegranate ink, and added Wine Rhinestones for the button holes.


The Details:
**Use the sketch above and dress it up with BUTTONS!
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC025
**Post a comment with a link to your card right here on this post by Sunday, July 12, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).
**PRIZE ~
One package of buttons of the winner's choice! (Winner is chosen randomly from all participants.)

Another note... you guys LOVE your Lemonade! :) More Basic Grey is on its way. If you don't see something in the store you would like, hang in there! As always, please feel free to contact me for more details! :)
