DVCB Challenge #16 : Buttons

Good afternoon, crafty friends! It's already been two weeks? Yikes! That means it's time for another Dream Valley challenge! This time around, we would like to see how you can use buttons. Card, altered project, layout...anything goes, as long as it uses buttons!

Our awesome sponsor this month is Digi's with Attitude, offering up a $10 gift certificate to their store (Canadian currency.) Their images are so fun and funky, you're sure to find an image to work with any theme.

I chose Movie Star Tween from DWA for my card. These images are perfect for my real-life tween girls. This one will be for my 11 year old who is doing AMAZINGLY well at school this year. We had a lot of struggles the past few years with getting her to do projects and assignments (I had to rush around doing most of the work for her at some points), and this year she's ahead!! I plan to give this to her when she completes a project she was assigned a week ago. It is due October 7th, but she's just about done, and she'll most likely finish up on Monday or Tuesday. It amazes me, the effort she's put forth this year to succeed, and I'm so very proud of her

I used my markers (nothing special, just "art markers." LOL 3 kids = no funds for Copics *yet*) to color her, blonde and blue eyed like my girl, and a simple peach crayon to do her skin. Diamond Stickles helped to make her really shine...earrings, dress, and the outline of the star she's standing on. MAMBI black and white flocked paper. American Crafts Remarks sentiment sticker. I like that it is sparkly and the colors go so well with the way I colored her! Cotton Candy Stickles, and random buttons/bling complete it nicely.

I just love the shine Diamond Stickles add to everything, no matter what color. What shall I do when I run out?!?! (Oh yeah, buy more...LOL)

That's it for my creation, head on over to DVCB and enter your own creation to win! You have 2 weeks.

Until next time!
