Button It!!!!!

No, I'm not being rude! It's the theme of our latest challenge over at THE CRAFTY PAD this week! We want to see you use...

*** BUTTONS  ***

...on your creations! The DT have done an amazing job this week, so please take a moment to go and have a look at their creations.

We have a new sponsor this week,

Technique Junkie Newsletter have an amazing prize on offer....a Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts CD (Value $17.95) and a one year on-line subscription to the Technique Junkie Newsletter! Now that's got to be worth entering our challenge for, right!?! Pop over to the challenge blog for more details.

Here's my card...

I used one of the gorgeous Wishing Well images designed by our lovely Debbie at The Crafty Pad Designs and made a shadow box card. I printed the DP straight onto card; its from a Nitwits digi set called Grins & Giggles Too. The image was coloured with Promarkers and attached to the inside/back section of the shadow box using foam pads for a 3D effect.

I used a template for the shadow box created by my wonderfully talented friend, Debbie Lauder over at Crafty Stash....she has templates for shadow boxes with different shaped apertures, circle, square and bracket; click the link and pop over, you won't be disappointed!

As our theme is BUTTONS, I have added buttons to the front, some have gold tinsel-thread through them, some are plain.
I inked the edges to finish the card, and here's a bird's eye view.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I'd also like to take this opportunity to say a warm welcome to my latest followers, Aletha, Gill M, and CraftyNCrazy! Lovely to see you and thanks for joining me!

Thanks for visiting and Happy Crafting!
