Cute as a Button

Hey y'all!  Happy Wednesday.  The week is almost over....thank GOODNESS!  I don't know about you, but I cannot wait for the weekend to get here.  Another good thing about this's time for a new Digistamps 4 Joy challenge!  This fortnight the challenge is.........Cute as a Button!  We want to see papercraft projects with at least one button.  You don't have to stick with just one, though.  Go crazy, add a bunch of buttons!  The more the merrier, right?  =D

Have you seen the new images released in the shop?  Let me tell you, they are cuuuuute!  For this challenge each of the DT members got to use one of the new images, so you'll definitely want to check out each of the DT's blogs.  As for my card, meet...........Curly Carly!

Isn't she a DOLL?  I just love her.  This was my first time trying to color really curly hair with my Copics...all in all I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!  The buttons and ribbon are from my stash, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts, part of a stamp set I've had for YEARS.  Don't you just love the paper?  One of my awesome blogging buddies, Trina, sent this paper to me after I admired it on her blog.  Isn't that so sweet?  She's such a kind, generous person.  <3 you, chica!!  It's kind of hard to see, but the stars on the paper are outlined with glitter, and there are a few lines of glitter on the striped paper.  Plus, I outlined the ribbon with lime green Stickles. (And a blue pen, which soaked into the ribbon a bit. Whoops!  I always's those little imperfections that give it character........right??  LOL)

So, anxious to see some of the other new releases made into projects?  Head on over to the Digistamps 4 Joy challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT's creations.  Remember, you do not have to use a Digistamps 4 Joy image to participate in the challenge.  However, if you do...your project will also be entered for a seperate prize, the DT Choice award!  I hope to see you playing along!

Hey! I love the way you colored her hair! And you're oh so welcome for the paper; I knew you would use it to create something fabulous like this! (Even though I think polka dots would have gone well with her 'fro!!) ;D
