Pink Elephant #6 (buttons)

I was shopping in HL last week and a tote handbag caught my eye! The body of the bag was b&w. The handles were a gorgeous lime green!! I knew I had to try to make a card those colors!! So, here it is...... PINK ELEPHANT CHALLENGE #6

The flourish stamp was stamped in basic black ink directly onto the white card stock in a pattern. The ribbon was attached and embellished. The chipboard sticker, buttons, corner piece and trim was then added. I actually, CB'd the bottom of the card after it was completed.

I can hardly believe it's time for another TPE challenge this week! Time flies when you're having fun!!

This week the challenge is using buttons......Now, that's a piece of cake for most crafters!! :D I think I use buttons on most of my projects!!! It would be more of a challenge for me to NOT use buttons!!! They are extremely versatile and fun to incorporate!! I decided to make two cards this week.....TYSM for your comments and support!! Hugs ~Lori R

This little card came together very quick!! I stamped the large flower image directly onto the white card stock. Cut a small strip of PP and layered it with a slightly larger piece of PP. I then added the chipboard sticker, buttons and bow. Also, I used pinking shears along the edges of the PP.

I used some more K & Company chipboard stickers!! I'm more than hooked on K & Company products!! The large flourish is from Stampabilities....The PP is Stampin' UP.....Ribbon is from HL ( $1.00 a roll ). Trim and ric-rac came from Joannes....Buttons are Foof-a-la.
