Button it Up!

This week’s There She Goes challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the Week, Iwona! This week we want you to grab your buttons and showcase them on your creations! Use them as a focal point, or simply embellish with them…the choice is yours. We can’t wait to see what you come up with! 

I've created my own button collection on this pretty autumn themed card.  To save space I recently took all of my button containers and dumped them into a big clip top glass jar.  It looks so pretty with my whole collection in it!  So I had a lot to choose from for this challenge.

On this card I used the pretty acorn and leaves from the gorgeous Bountiful Blessings set from TSG, I colored the image like the turning leaves of fall in Copics and then popped it up and paired it with the pretty wood grain texture from PTI and the pretty Basic Grey Indian Summer DSP.  

Then it's just a pretty collection of buttons on twill and Baker's Twine accenting.  A little eclectic and whimsical I think.  :)

We hope you join us on the challenge!  

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes buttons, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz.  This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Dec. 27th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store! 

...Just to let you know,  I'll be back to blogging again in a week or so, I'm going to spend the time these next days of Christmas Break with my family. 

I wish all of you friends out there the most BLESSED Christmas with the ones you love.  And I pray that you open and receive that most beautiful gift of all - Jesus.  One of my favourite names for Him is Emmanuel - which means  - God With Us!

This is beautiful. There's nothing wrong with making a fall themed card in January, right? I think that's exactly what I'm gonna do! Thanks for the inspiration :)
