Challenge 1!!


Hi everyone!! Welcome to the first Papertrey Peeps challenge!! I am so excited to be starting us off!!! I thought I would start out with an easy one and I challenge you to use buttons!! If you don't have any buttons you can certainly make some!! I wanted to get another card made making my own but haven't gotten to it yet, if I get a chance I will make another card and post it!!
For this challenge I wanted to do something a little different, first I challenged myself to use Lavender Moon. I LOVE this color but struggle with it for some reason. I decided to use my Love Songs set, I haven't used it in a while. I embossed the balloons on several colors and cut them out. I used my glue pen and applied Prisma Glitter, so sparkly!! When it was dry I used DMC floss, wrapping around the bottom of the balloons. I then went through my buttons and found this fun button with a hole in the back and ran the floss through the hole. The card still needed something so I used Nichole's technique and applied Scor-Tape around the edges of the top white layer and applied more glitter.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you create!!!
Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Love Songs
Paper: Papertrey White, Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz & Sweet Blush

Yay - let the challenges commence! Fab challenge, Lori - though it may take me few hours to pick exactly which buttons feature on my card as they're all so adorable!
