As easy as 1-2-3

Hi everyone,


It’s Sunday and it is time for a new challenge at Come and Get It and the challenge for this week is a 1-2-3 Challenge hence the title of my post.


You need to use:


1 – Ribbon

2 – Designer Papers

3 – Brads or Buttons


Sounds good doesn’t it?!  Well here is the link to the CAGI blog where you can see what the other Design Team members have created.


For my card I have used 3 of the Bitty Buttons, 2 different pieces of the Attic Boutique DSP and some Soft Suede Ribbon.


I punched out the flowers in Poppy Parade card stock with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and used some glue to stick the buttons on to the card stock.  The buttons have been added to the DSP with dimensionals.


I have taken my card layout inspiration from Sketch n Stash’s current challenge, which is to use a past sketch of your choice.  They have some great sketches and I have chosen number 12. 


Below is a picture of their sketch.




and here is my card….





Stamp set: Clearly for You

Card: Soft Suede, Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede

Accessories:  Soft Suede Ribbon (retired), Attic Boutique DSP, Bitty Buttons, Itty Bitty Buttons Punch Pack, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Modern Label Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



At first I was not sure of the card but it is growing on me. 


It’s different and that’s why challenges are so good they make you create something different or not usually your style.
