It was my turn to set the challenge over on Dottie's World this week and I took inspiration from my Button box. I was sorting out a few for Nicki's charity project and thought how naughty it was to hoard all those button but never use them, same for my beads too! So I dusted them off and decided to use them in a challenge.
"I have tons of them but rarely use them ! Dig deep into your crafty stash and embellish away. It doesn't matter how you use them, as long as they are visible on your creation. If you haven't got any (!!!!) improvise! Only other "rule" is that a Charmed Download must be used."
Now decisions decisions.....I have some lovely new flowers to play with and some really pretty, little buttons but somehow I could not part with them, not even sure where they came from but they look very old. So I decided to go for something else, some metal buttons that were just crying out to be used on a masculine card.....and here it is!
The inspiration for the card really came from the pattern around the arrow, the ribbon sort of blended in with this and being that the image is quite young I thought text m=language might be appropriate....but I showed hubby Chris and he didn't pick up on the "Happy Birthday......2 u!"
Hmmmm...now I am worried it doesn't make sense...LOL.
Enough waffle, must get on I have more kitchen cupboards in store today and if I am very lucky we came get the dishwasher plumbed in again. On a bad note, the washing machine exploded yesterday morning! It literally had sparks flying out the bottom and went up in a puff of smoke fusing the electrics on the way!
Make sure you pop over to Dottie's World and see the rest of the Design Teams creations!
