Playing in Paradise Challenge # 46

Happy Friday  -  the last weekend before Christmas. I am starting to get a little excited, with that said I did not make Christmas card for this weeks Playing in Paradise Challenge # 46  :). 

I am even more excited and honoured to be a asked to be a part of this fabulous Design Team in the new year, how fantastic is that.

This week challenge is all about Buttons!!!
How easy is that? Create a card, scrap page or a project using buttons.

Anyone who follows my blog on even a semi regular basis knows I LOVE buttons, more specifically making then with paper and heat embossing them. This card is no different.

I received my new Dec stamp set from The Stamps of Life this week and could not wait to ink them up. The candies are three layers deep with the last layer I made into buttons and popped up with foam tape. My husband thinks my card is psychedelic with all the swirls but I like it.

Supplies: Cream and navy cardstock, Design Paper-Stella and Rose, The Stamps of Life-candy2share, misc ribbon, kaisercraft pearls.

    Best of the season to you and your family
