TEBB Challenge #12 Hosted by Sankari

Hi Everyone! Sankari here to bring you another challenge!!! Woo-hoo!!!

Today has been a nonstop birthday bash PAR-TAAY! One of my favorite things to do for birthdays is to decorate - I love making crowns for the bday girl/boy, balloons, streamers, treatbags - the works! So how about a little decoration with embellishment challenge - specifically buttons!


CHALLENGE: Get out your buttons!!! Decorate your creation with buttons as the main embellishment - they can be BIG, small, colorful, different shapes, sizes, etc. - whatever you would like! The main thing is to have buttons (more than one) as the main embellishment - let's see the most creative button usage you've got!!! woo-hoo!!

KEYWORD: Upload your creation to your blog or online gallery (or both). If you’re uploading to online galleries, use the keyword TEBBSW. Then come back to this challenge and leave a comment with a direct link to your creation! In order to be eligible for the prizes, you must leave a comment with a link to your card by midnight PST Wednesday, September 9th.

PRIZE: I will choose my favorite creation from among all the participants and mail you the button box that I created for this challenge along with a $10.00 gift certificate to the TE Store!

GRAND PRIZE: One random person who participates in ALL 13 of our Birthday Bash challenges will receive a $50 gift certificate to the TE Store in addition to an 8x10 custom watercolor Cuppie painting by our very own Jessie Oleson!

Once you complete and link all 13 challenges, send an email to tayloredexpressions@gmail.com to be eligible for our grand prize! Just include your name and “I completed all 13 challenges!”

MY BUTTON PROJECT:

I love all the yummy buttons in the Taylored Expressions store - especially the Clear Buttons - because you can make SO many fun buttons by combining them with different Designer Papers!!!



Here is what I made using the Clear Buttons, with the August Key Ingredients (which I think is one of my FAVE Key Ingredients and the Perfect Package Card Box (specifically designed to hold A2 cards! :


Here is a closer peek:


Card Details:

All of the papers, ribbon, bling, rub ons and cardstock are from the August Key Ingredients. The rest of the project is made up using the Clear Buttons from TE, Perfect Package card box from TE, spellbinders, and adhesive!

Can't wait to see how you ROCK the BUTTONS!!!!

Have Fun!!!!
Sankari :)
And stay tuned for Jackie who is going to be next with the last challenge!

thanks for the challenge. I rarely remember to use my buttons. This challenge made me pull them out and dust them off

Using buttons was a real challenge for me since I don't have that many. I did manage to add a few. Thanks!!
