You've moved button

Hi everyone,

A new Monday has arrived and this week Simon Says Stamp and Show a new challenge for us too. Buttons are the main focus this week. Whether you use real buttons, you have a die of buttons, or you have a nice stamp with buttons, all is possible.


My best friend Lein moved from an apartment to a beautiful house in a town nearby.And she told me that she needed about 250 boxes to move all her stuff! That gave me the idea to create a card inspired by a moving box. I took a cardboard box and cut it to the size of a card. Then I started pulling the top layer so the layer corrugated shows.



The WordPlay letters I painted blue, then gently go over in one direction with the black paint dabber, so that not everything gets covered. And last I went over Teal Color Shine Spray.



The buttons are from Doodlebug, aren't they pretty?






To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra
