Incy Wincy Designs Challenge.....BUTTON UP!!!

The Incy Wincy Designs Challenge blog has a great challenge for you this week....USE BUTTONS on your project! I LOVE BUTTONS!!!!! I had to walk away from about 9 large pickle jars FULL of buttons at a Garage Sale on Sat....LOL...that was probably close to 10,000 buttons!!! LMAO Tim would have killed me!!!! Here is my card for this week. I used the 3D Penguin, which is available from Asprire to Thrive shop. These 3 D sheets are amazingly cool - you get the image, plus anywhere from 3-10 pieces to layer - like decoupage!!! So much fun!!!! Go check out the GREAT selection they have!!!

Here is a side view to show the looks really cool in real life!!! HONEST!!!!

I used a black card base and layered bashful blue and white to create a "winter" feel! The white layer is dry embossed with the Snowflake folder for my Cuttlebug!! I attached sparkly blue ribbon and a snowflake charm (which I got at Simon Says Stamp), buttons with silver thread, and blue rhinestones (also from Simon Says!). I coloured the penguin with Copics.

Thanks for looking! I hope you head over to the Incy Wincy blog to join us this week!!! The prize is $10 to the Aspire to Thrive shop - so YOU can get your own 3D images to play with !!! HOW FUN!!!!!!

Have a great week!!!! Today is a holiday in Canada, so I'm going to enjoy the day with my dogs and Tim. Back to work tomorrow!!!!
