Cute as a Button

How many challenges can one card cover? I don't really know but this one covers 3 challenges. #1 Digi Kitty Monday use some punches challenge. I used two punches in this card, my square scalloped Marvy punch and my round scalloped punch shaper. Challenge #2 is for my Just cards group and is a color challenge. Color choices were: Raspberry, Sapphire, Khaki, Seashell, & Ochra. I used the first three colors. Sorry but my Sapphire looks sort of purple after I put all the embossing powder on it. Challenge #3 is for the Squiggle Fly Mon. sketch. I embossed all four squares with four of my small cuttlebug embossing folders then sanded off the top of each raised image. I covered the round scallop with versa mark and clear embossing powder. Makes it all shimmery. A large cream button with a jewel in the center finishes off the card. Thanks for stopping by, Janet


  1. Hi Janet, Wow, very very cute & simple! I love it! Thank you for playing with us @ Digi Kitty~ hope to see you again!

  2. Adorable--simple--but so charming! I love the 4 square technique and the scallop in the middle! Dry embossing is something you don't see alot--and you did it with the cuttlebug! Clever!
    Thank you for taking the time to play with us this week at Digi Kitty!
