CGC DT Post – Challenge #163

Hello lovelies!

I’m back for our usual Wednesday date! It’s time for another Crafty Girls Corner! This week’s theme is: “Use Buttons“! I’m not a big embellishment type of crafter so for me it was a challenge by itself…looking all over the house for a cute spare button..lol!

Our awesome sponsor this week are:

Digi Stamps 4 Joy

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

Creative Bug

Prize ~ 5 Digital images

Rick St. Dennis

Prize ~ 2 Digital images

For this challenge I used Isabella Sunny Days by Rick St. Dennis! Sooo super sweet image! As per usual I colored it using my Copic Markers and framed it using a non-branded die-cut. For the background I used a brick-wall style embossing folder and colored it with Distress Inks in red and earthy colors. For the sentiment I used Avery Elle – Simple Hugs die. And for the needs of the challenge I added a button I found in the house and attached it using thin twine – because I wanted to keep an earthy tone for the theme of my card. I don’t know why but, to me, this card feels like a sunny afternoon in a cottage house!And how cute is this little cat?! 🙂

With this card I entered the following challenges. Feel free to hop along and join the fun!

Thank you all for stopping by!Wishing you a wonderful day and hope to see you again soon 🙂
