Discover Your Wings





I was so inspired to create this happy spring card...especially after getting my new stamps in the mail today! I used three challenges for my card today...Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge #5, The Play Date Cafe Creativity Challenge #19 using yellows, and the Pals Paper Arts Spring Theme Challenge #32.



I stamped the main image with marker, then added the corduroy buttons to the flower centers. Many layers later, I used two slightly bigger corduroy buttons for the top two corners that are threaded with some linen thread. That yummy bow wrapped vertically in the center also has a corduroy buttons embellishment. I guess I couldn't get enough of those bright and cherry buttons:) Have a happy day!





Stamps: Discover Your Wings (Taylored Expressions)
Paper: Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Sweet Pea DSP & other non-SU dp
Ink: Old Olive, Taken With Teal, Pumpkin Pie & Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Markers
Other: Pumpkin Pie & Summer Sun Corduroy Buttons, Linen Thread, Mat Pack & Paper Piercing Tool, Old Olive Striped Grosgrain, Circle/Scallop Circle Nestabilities (non-SU)
