Summer Card Camp - Week Three

Well since I totally missed last week's deadline, I thought I'd scrape in and participate in the challenge this week - and to make up or it, I'm submitting not one but TWO cards ;)

I'd love to say it's because I was being so industrious, but actually, it's more that I just wasn't as happy with this first one, so I kept going using the scraps and came up with one I preferred! hehe

So this week's challenge colours were totally up my alley, I thought it would be a breeze - but really it was just more pressure! That said it was heaps of fun pulling out my things and making something just for fun!

So attempt number one - I cracked out the SU Eastern Blooms set (yes.. again!) with SU Early Espresso and Kraft. The wide striped grosgrain ribbon is SU as well and my stock is seriously dwindling...

The red buttons are Pure Poppy vintage buttons from Papertrey Ink. The packs are great, they're only $5 and you get a big bag of various sizes and shapes. I just used 2 threads from a piece of kitchen twine for making the bow and stitching in the button. Thought it was a cute touch.

I've just discovered that I can't submit two cards from the same link.. so I'm about so split this post into two!

Stay tuned for attempt #2!


  1. Absolutely love this! The ribbon/button treatment is perfect!

  2. Love the simplistic beauty of your card. It caught my eye immediately.
