Stamping In Time: On Assignment with Betty (SNTODBD3)!

Thanks so much for everyone who played along last week! .
We have us a WINNER!   It really is hard to choose because they are all so beautiful! 

This week's Stamping In Time Winner is Marcelle Schauer.  Congratulations!  While I loved all of Marcelle's wonderful textures and attention to details, it was her unique way she cut out and popped up sections of the focal image that grabbed my eye.  I love this unique look.  Beautifully done, Marcelle!  Check out her card link and give her some congrats!             Marcelle, please pm me at SCS under gbedwright for your $15 stamp set gift code information! Again, congratulations!

It is time for another assignment challenge!

The challenge:  Buttons!  Find ways to incorporate buttons with this set.  You can dress them up or go very casual.  You may even create some unique way to use buttons in your design! 

For my card I chose to focus on the poem.  I am using Basicgray Origins dp.  I stamped the poem directly onto one small leafy patterns that come in the pack.  I layered with one of the grid and floral pieces.   I layered  the Spellbinders Grand 12" Lace Border with a piece of solid garden green cardstock, one of the yellow printed papers from this paper pack and one of the smaller darker prints.  I love this diecut bordered layered.  I added my buttons with punch twig detailing.  I dressed up my buttons a bit with a gold pearl.  I finished my card with a larger button, gold pearl, and gold cording.  Just so you know, ODBD has some basicgray buttons on clearance!    Please check out my Stamping to the Wright blog post for more card commentary!
