Button Bear

It's time for another challenge at Our Creative Corner! Our hostess for the next two weeks is Sharon Wheet. This week she has a fun one: a baby card using kraft card stock, some kind of trim (ribbon, lace, crochet, etc.) and at least one button. I love making baby cards, so I had a great time with this one!

I used the Nursery Suite designer paper as the inspiration for my colors: Regal Rose, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip (oops, or is it supposed to be Early Espresso?) and white. The basic layout was CASEd from a card I saw in Paper Crafts by Stasia Sloma. I had to use my favorite (retired) bear from Cute & Cuddly, paper pieced of course. The scallop circle stamp comes from the Homemade stamp - I just colored only the outside edge with a marker. The rose scallop border was made with the Tasteful Trim die, and for my trim I added some narrow white lace out of my stash. The buttons dress up the top corner (the flower is SU retired, the others are random ones I found). Last came the sentiment from Something to Celebrate (level 2 hostess set).

OK, now for your daily cuteness quota, go check out the rest of the team's baby cards - they are adorable! And be sure to play with us and share your creation so everyone can see!

Oh this bear is to die for! The whole card is just adorable. Thanks for your patience and support these last few weeks as I have been going thru my 'stuff'. It really has been more helpful that you can know!

Totally sweet, Lori! Love the colors and the strips! Yummy lace and adorable image - can't go wrong with that! I like that you used 3 buttons too. I wanted to do that but it looked too busy on my card.

Hope you have a wonderful relaxing weekend!

Hugs,
Linda
