The Friends of Flourishes are bringing you exciting and different challenges each week. Everyone can PLAY and anyone can WIN! Make sure you continue reading to find out how.
This week Betty Wright is hosting the Timeless Tuesday Challenge. It seems that buttons are everywhere. Whether they are tiny or huge, colorful or clear, slick or textured, or even stamped, they are one of the hottest items out there. So, this week your challenge is to use buttons!!!
While we are on the subject of buttons, would you like our Timeless Tuesday blog button for your blog? Come along with me and I will take you to the info.
First, let's go see the clever ways the Blog Team used buttons to give you some ideas to get started.
First stop is Betty Wright. I am using the Flourishes Poppy Patch and Many Sentiments on my card. My card is very bold and bright and covered in dimensional poppies!!! Can you see my two tiny button brads at the bottom left? They are still buttons even if they are tiny...lol!!!!
Buttons can be very elegant and sophisticated, too. Becca Feeken uses the Thank You set in wonderful creams and golds and accented with a lush satin ribbon adorned with ornate buttons. This is one stunning Thank You card!!!!
Next stop is Cindy Haffner's . Her card uses the Fantasy Floral Garden set. I need to get this set. I just love the many flowers that come in this set. Cindy colored it so beautifully, too. Her card boasts some beautiful colors, patterns, and textures. I love her little embellished assortment of colorful and see-through buttons. Did you see the tiny little button brad wrapped around the ribbon? How clever is that?
Next, we tip toe over to Dee Jackson's where we have a sleeping baby. Shhh.....be very quiet. We NEVER wake sleeping babies...hee hee. Dee is using the Rock-A-Bye set. Oh, this is so cute and beautifully done. I just love the way she colored the moon. Love her pearlized button with a touch of pink gingham ribbon, too. Adorable card!!!!!
Continuing on our journey, we visit Kimberly Crawford’s where she uses the Many Sentiments set to create this stunningly bold and beautiful card. Love the ALL black base with white embossed sentiment. She also uses Basic Gray Urban Prairie dp which is available in the Flourishes store. I just LOVE her clear button edge detailing and dp backed big button. Great look and effect!!!
It is pure Euphoria at Silke Ledlow’s . She uses the I Love Roses set and frames it beautifully in the Basic Gray Euphoria dp also sold at the Flourishes store. I love the soft palette of colors and frame detailing to bring focus to this lovely and beautifully colored rose. Note her little cluster of color coordinating buttons. Beautiful card!!!!!
