Button It Up

Wow, another great great challenge week has passed and we had so many wonderful players with thier fantastic creations!

Now, it's time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion! This week, our theme is, "Button It up." We want to see buttons (real or faux) on your project!

Our sponsor this week is 16year old Kayla, from Purple Panda Designs. She has a blog where she sells her cute hand drawn digi stamps. If you haven't checked out her designs, yet, you can see some of them below. Kayla generously provided our Design Team with 3 cute image for us to create with this week. Thank you, Kayla for the awesome images you gave us to work with!

I hope everyone will check out Kayla's shop at Purple Panda Designs, and help support this budding young digi artist!

For my project today, I am using the image called "Baby and Fruitloop" from Purple Panda Designs. I just love this cute pair of birds! They remind me of warm weather, which I am so so ready for, already! I decided to go with bright summery colors for the birds and the DP. The birds are colored with Promarkers. All papers are from my stash, as well as the buttons. The feathers are new stash for 2011. I seen them on sale at Hobby Lobby and had always wanted to try using feathers on a card, so I bought them on impulse. They turned out to be perfect for Baby and Fruitloop! The sentiments are from Sentiments 4 You and are punched with oval and scalloped oval punches by Stampin Up, then mounted with foam tape, for dimension.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
