Sending Good Thoughts Card


Hello and Happy Sunday! It's time for another challenge at The Paper Players. This week we have a theme challenge hosted by Sandy. The theme is to use buttons on your creation. Now, I must tell you that my button stash is pretty limited. So, I decided to combine some older products with a few new ones to create this Sending Good Thoughts Card. For the older supplies I used patterned paper and buttons from the Sycamore Street collection along with the Madison Avenue stamp set from sale-a-bration a couple of years ago. The current products used were The Perfect Pennants stamp set, Banner Framelits along with stampin' pads in Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry.  For the center of the buttons I used Pool Party twine which is discontinued. Well now that you've seen my card, I can't wait to see what you create. I sure hope you will find a few buttons and play along at The Paper Players (click here). The challenge is open until Noon (PST) on Friday, August 8th. Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific day!
