Merry Monday #118 {Buttons & Ribbon!}


Happy "Merry Monday!"

This week over at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, it is my turn to play "challenge hostess" and here is my theme for the week:

 
 
 When I came across this photo I knew that it would make an awesome challenge since I have 4 large IKEA jars FULL of buttons on display on my shelf! YUP...on display, cuz they don't get used very often ;) Time to start using them more :)


The designer papers are from Bazzill called "Nordic Pines" and I used the notepaper die from Paper Smooches and my star dies are from 'Lil Inker Designs....I added black ribbon and red/white twine along with 2 buttons!

The rest of the Merry Makers totally blew my socks off this week with their creations - come check 'em out HERE! Link up your card using RIBBON and BUTTONS for us - and we'll be along to leave you some luvin' too - and you also have the chance to be our Guest Designer if your card is chosen as our weekly winner! Happy crafting!

Lori, thank you for your challenge, I had to go through my buttons stash and got really inky fingers distressing my ribbon. That was fun! Your card is just stunning! Love rustic colours and bold style
