I Just Love It When...

...a card actually turns out the way I had it planned in my head! That doesn't happen around here all the time...lol! This week's Blogger's Challenge is a color challenge. Our creations need to include Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, and Really Rust. I used inks in the challenge colors to color up my Stampendous image. The patterned paper is from one of the Stampin' Up's retired holiday paper packs. To end up with Riding Hood Red buttons, I simply punched a 1/2" circle of the red and placed the circle under a clear button. I lined up the button holes and made holes in the paper circle with my paper piercer. I held the button and the paper circle together with a very narrow strip of Old Olive. This is my favorite thing to do when I don't have the colored button that I need! A little faux sewing, an A Muse holiday sentiment, and some Star Dust Stickles complete my card. For some more inspiration with these lovely colors, you can check out what the other members of the group came up with here. Have a Happy Friday, and thanks a bunch for stopping by today...Toodles! :D
