May Inspiration at Cute As A Button

Hey everyone!
Today I'm  sharing a card on the

I haven't made a baby card in a while and Francesca has
some great digis for a baby theme, so I chose to use
Baby Bear Buttons.

I gathered my materials.
I started by printing the image twice and coloring one of them.
I used a 12x12 piece of solid colored card stock,
circle and square cutting dies, an embossing folder and some ribbon.

The card stock was cut in half to create a 6x6 square card base.
I adhered a piece of white card stock.

I fussy cut the colored image.
I die cut the circles and embossed the white one.
The uncolored image was cut with a square die and matted.

I took the colored image and popped it on top of the uncolored die
and matted the embossed circle die cut.
The ribbon was adhered to a strip of colored card stock.

All the pieces were arranged and adhered to the card base.
I added the buttons and a bow to finish off.

I hope you'll check out this digi and all the other
products available at

And, we'd love to see you join us for the monthly challenge at the

I have an inspiration post up at

I created a card using a set called

This was a fairly easy card to create using
 a printed paper with flowers in the corner.
I took the coordinating all over flower print and fussy cut
some of the matching flowers in order to layer.
After coloring the image I die cut with a circle die
and framed with a scalloped circle die cut.
The sentiment is included in the set so I printed
and cut with a banner die. 
The finishing touches were to add the bow and some pearls!

One for the Ladies

It's time for a new challenge at
This week we want to see your projects
inspired by our theme of
"One for the Ladies"!

Out other sponsors this week are
All Dressed Up & Oddball Art.
I colored the image with pencil colors before fussy cutting.
Then I had the task of trying to find papers that would compliment
the colors I used. Normally, I'll decide on my papers before coloring
the image. But luckily I remembered I had a K & Company
paper pad and matching die cuts that worked out really well!
Then I added some glittery enamel dots and a bow to finish!

What would you create with this theme?
We'd love to see at
Glitter 'N' Sparkle!
