Whimsical Wednesday "Buttons and Bows" Challenge


Another wonderful Wednesday is upon us and time for another wonderful challenge over at Whimsical Designs!

This week the challenge is "Buttons and Bows" Create a card or project and include a button and a bow.

Our sponsor this week is Miss Kate Cuttables and you can win a $20.00 gift certificate!!!


For my project I decided to make a card and use a bunch of my scrap ribbon up by creating a flower out of ribbon with a button in the center. This makes for a cute and fun card and is a good way to use up some of the scraps we all have.

For the sentiment I used one of Stephanies stamps from her stamp set Whimsical Fun Vol 1 which you can purchase here. This stamp set has become one of my "go to" stamp sets, it has fabulous sentiments for many occasions!!!!


Supplies used: card stock - white, lavender; embossing folder - Sizzix; ribbon and button - my stash; twine - Liz's Paperloft Boutique; stamp - Whimsical Fun Vol. 1 by Whimsical designs; ink - Lovely Lilac by Stampin' Up; Silhouette Studio cut file for the label; Pop Dots.


Now I hope you'll stop on over at Whimsical Designs to see the fabulous projects by the design team and to join in on the fun!!
