KLSNS Challenge # 20.... buttons!

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope that your day has started on the "right foot" and that you are ready for a fun challenge. This weeks KLSNS Challenge is super fun....buttons! Unleash your creativity and have fun with this challenge:)

My image is a newer C.C. Designs image (April Rabbit ) and she is also sold at Kelly's on-line store. I love the look of mix-matched design paper patterns and used two different papers from Basic Grey's (Phoebe) paper pack. It's fun to try different techniques and I'm pleased with the results:)

For more information regarding the rules of this weeks challenge and for more DT inspiration, please click here. I hope you have time to play cause I would love to see your cards!

card details~~~~~~~~~~
stamp C.C. Designs ( April Rabbit ), sentiment The Pixie Cottage, card stocks SU and PTI, design paper Basic Grey (Phoebe), inks Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic Markers, Spellbinders Labels 10, Petaloo Flowers, Basic Grey Buttons and Stickles.

I apologize for being MIA the past few days. The day after the twins birthday party, I was notified that my best friend was diagnosed uterine cancer. My friend had surgery Thursday and hopefully the doctors were able to remove all the cancer. I'm praying that all is well and that my friend will be OK. I also want to give a word of advice, if you have gone through menopause and haven't had a menstrual cycle in years and all of a sudden you start your cycle, go see your OB/GYN immediately! Try to have a beautiful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.

Another adorable card Risa! I love how you used blue in the background to pop up the bunny. Is that a tiny bit of bling on her bow too?
