Whimsical Wednesday 3,2,1 Challenge


Happy Hump Day and welcome to another challenge over at Whimsical Designs!

This week our challenge is called Three, Two, One. On your creation you must add three of something, two of something and one of something. For example-three buttons, two bling, one ribbon.

Our sponsor this week is The Robins Nest and you can win a $10 gift certificate to their store.



For my project I decided to make a masculine birthday card, I always seem to be short of cards to give the guys. For my 3,2,1 I used one piece of patterned paper, two brads and three buttons. I tucked a sentiment in the pocket using Stephanies "Everyday Sentiments" which you can purchase here.
You could also use the pocket to hold a gift card if you chose.




Supplies used: card stock - green, brown; patterned paper by Scrapbook Walls; brads - American Crafts, buttons and twine- my stash, 1/2" circle punch - EK Success; stamps - Everyday Sentiments by Whimsical designs; ink - Tuxedo Black by memento; sewing machine.


I know the design team has some really fabulous inspiration for you this week so I hope you'll stop by Whimsical Designs and take a peek. We're looking forward to seeing what you create with our Three, Two, One challenge so please link up with us!!!!
