Diva Coffee Break Design Team Sketch Challenge DCBD #195

 I’ve really enjoyed being a member of the Diva Coffee Break Design Team!  Each week, the sketches push me to create something special just for you.. and this week is no exception!


Have you seen the Big Designer Buttons on page 17 of the Holiday Mini Catalog?? They are fabulous for scrapbook pages.. but when one of my friends commented that she didn’t ever forsee using such large buttons on a card, I just HAD to do it…  Combined with paper daisies, I think they performed well and created a balance within this fabulous sketch… Here’s my card:



It was very easy to add polka dots to the Paper Daisies.. I simply used the brush end of my Blushing Bride Stampin Write Marker and allowed the ink to bleed into the paper until I had a polka dot.  It is a quick process… and I think it complimented the other textures on this card as well… what do you think?

I hope you’ll play along with the Diva Coffee Break Designs Team this week… I love seeing all your sketch based projects… and that can include a scrapbook page or ATC as well!

I LOVE this card! I'm into EFs these days and I like the way you used the two of these along with the flowers. Think it's time to crack open the package of flowers! Thanks for blessing my day. :)
