Delovely Button

Yesterday was the monthly DD/DDA challenge on SCS. I almost missed it because I wasn't feeling well. After work I decided to see what I could come up with. The challenge this time was to use buttons and our restriction was black, ablsolutely nothing we used could be black.

I knew that I wanted to make my own button despite the gobs of buttons I have in my stash, call me silly, I guess. I had a fresh pack of the new Cosmo Cricket Delovely paper calling my name and I figured the bright color scheme would help me stay away from black. Several of my ingredients are SU: alpha set, bird punch, Bermuda Bay cardstock and Pink Passion ink. The button was made using the Sizzix Circles #2 die, some DP, chipboard and the Crop-o-Dile. I used the new Tim Holtz border die on the bottom of the DP.

The result is a bright and cheery card! I like it!

Here is the link to the gallery if you would like to check out the other fab designs for this month's challenge.

Hi Tracy, I've been going thru your blog seeing all I've missed and I just love all your creations! It looks like I've missed so much! Things are crazy at my house right now...my dad with Alzheimer's moved in with me and my life is upside down. Some day I hope to be stamping again :)
