DeNami Addict Challenge #4: BUTTONS!


Who doesn't love buttons?  Seriously!  Not only do they help keep your clothes on, but they are fantastic embellishments to use on your cards!  And THAT, my friends, leads me to this blog post! The amazing ladies over at the Confessions of a DeNami Addict blog are hosting their 4th challenge, and the theme is to use buttons!

Now, buttons can be used in many different ways.  Big buttons...small buttons...focal points...accents...the list goes on and on.  I really do love to use buttons on projects (as you can tell from these past cards:  Here, Here, and Here, too).  While those past projects used buttons in very obvious ways, sometimes, I love just using one single button as the perfect finishing touch.  

TADAA!



I just love that cute little penguin, and those medium polka dots are a favorite of mine, but the card just wasn't complete until that little red button was added to the DeNami grosgrain ribbon bow!

Here's a look at how the card opens.  You can see how I used a scallop punch on the side of the card and stamped more polka dots on the inside of the card.



Lastly, here are some close-ups of that li'l cutie.  I'm showing both these pictures because the lighting is so different, and I just couldn't decide which photo I liked better.  LOL!  One shows off the coloring better (gotta love Copic markers!), and the other shows the glittery sparkle better (gotta love Stardust Glitter Pens!).  


Wish me luck with the challenge!

HAPPY CRAFTING!
