It's Bright Alright!



Remember my news last week about the new Our Creative Corner challenge blog? We had our first challenge last week, and oh my gosh, the response was huge!! We are so excited! This week's challenge, brought to us by the June hostess, Cindy Haffner, is to use at least 1 button and 1 brad. Love it!! Head over to the OCC blog for details on how to play along and to see samples from the designers. I hope you can play along!

I started out my project with a package of black and white chipboard buttons, and paired them with some colorful paper flowers and black and white polka dot ribbon (but I covered up most of that, lol!). The sentiment from Verve was too perfect for these wild colors to pass up. Some narrow green rickrack I found in my stash was the perfect finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back in a jiffy with my SFYTT sample!



Stamps: Fluttering By (Verve Visual)
Paper: white textured card stock (Bazzill), Basic Black (SU!)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black (Tsukineko)
Accessories: large black brads (Close to My Heart); black and white chipboard buttons (Making Memories); polka dot ribbon (Michael's); celery green rickrack (unknown); Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder (Provo Craft); flowers (Prima); Tempting Turquoise grosgrain and ticket corner punch (SU!)
