OWH Stars and Stamps Midweek Throwdown Challenge

Buttons, Bows, Brown and Turquoise
The challenge for this week is brown and turquoise.  I created the sample card for it and added buttons and a bow.  The buttons on the card are stamped ones and die cut ones.  I love the brown and turquoise color combination.  Of course I had to give it a vintage look. I used OWH Sketch #102 as my starting point.

You could easily create this look using pattern paper circles too.  The stamps sets used from Stampin'Up! are Button Button, Creative Elements, and Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Paper used are Kraft, Creative Memories White, Mediterranean, Stampin'Up! Early Expresso.  Ink used was Chocolate Chip for the buttons and Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Vintage Photo for the distressing.  The ribbon was from a bunch of scrap ribbon I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I used the new Tim Holtz Distressed markers in Vintage Photo for the stitching.

I hope OWH gets enough general type cards this time so they can ship a whole box of cards rather than an envelope!  Keep creating and mail those cards in!  Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting!
