My Wonderful Friend

It's time again for another Limelight sketch & product challenge. The focus this time is on buttons. I was able to combine something old and new on this card. My new goodies are the paper and buttons from BasicGrey's Lemonade line. The something old is Purely Pomegranate and Soft Sky cardstock, which goes so well with the BG stuff. My hoarding came in handy today! ;)

I also learned that I can use a rub-on, then run it through my Cuttlebug without ruining it. I thought maybe the sentiment might crack or something, but it turned out just fine.

Speaking of Limelight, I'm getting some free goodies from them for winning last week's Etsy Inspired challenge. Woohoo! You can't go wrong with free goodies!

Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky, BasicGrey dp
Accessories: flowers (Prima), buttons (BasicGrey), rub-on (SU), Cuttlebug Swiss Dots

Yeah, I've been using lots of Purely Pomegranate and Soft Sky with this line, too! I have found that I love the pop of the new Bermuda Bay with it, too! Yay for new things! ;) Your card is GORGEOUS...very clever to use the Cuttlebug on a rub-on piece. And the different sized buttons are great! Your card will be featured on Monday! :)
