Paper Players challenge



Sandy chose a FUN challenge for Paper Players this week...buttons! Who can resist a card with buttons on it? They just add that little bit of somthin' somthin' to make the card special.





I reached for two new SU sets, Work of Art and Nuts about You. I love using the Work of Art set for backgrounds. Here I used it with baked brown sugar and coastal cabana. I love that combo!  In fact, I decided to keep just those two colors for the whole card. I also added some tiny hearts and little brown buttons to the tree.

If you want to play along this week, head on over to Paper Players!

Laurie, your card is adorable! I love this little tree with the hearts and buttons! I bought this set and haven't used it yet. You inspired me to get it out. Love the Work of Art stamp in the background!! XX

So cute, Laurie! This stamp set has been on my wish list for a while, but why haven't I ordered it?! Love that little squirrel, and a great way to use buttons :)

Very clever creation. I look at some stamp sets and wonder what I'd do with them (Nuts About You) and then I see it used and have that ah-ha moment! Very cute!
