CCEE Challenging Challenge

Every week a group of gals and I do these challenges on Splitcoaststampers. This week we had to use 18 buttons on our card....18!


Well, I had been cleaning my house all day yesterday so I rewarded myself with a break to create this:


The picture is one of my all time favs of my daughter, Cara. She has such a beautiful smile....so I made a scrapbook page that showcases it. (I used the colors and circle shapes she has in her room as the inspiration for this!)

The chipboard C was layered with blue cardstock. I embossed the flowers from My Favorite Things "Farm Friends" on the letter and on the strip of blue on the side.

I used 19 buttons (one for extra credit!!!) Some of the buttons are clear and are layered underneath the letters I printed from my computer. Others are layered on top of other buttons--but they are all there!


Whew...a tough challenge for me. Glad that one is done!


Thanks for stopping by!
