Have a Ball! Sweet Dreamers Challenge

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

This week's Sweet Dreamers Challenge is to make a card using buttons! Buttons add so much depth and texture to a craft project. However, I am not a big user of them on my cards. I don't know why really...just not something I bring out very often.

When I saw this patterned paper in my stash, I got the idea of a gumball machine. I had the stamp and the rest seemed to fall into place. The base is colored with Prismas. I punched many many circles with a 1/2 " punch and layered them into the globe. I then added the buttons with large glue dots to bring them off the card a little. The gumball stamp was then adhered to the patterned paper and cardstock with dimensionals.

I think this is going to be a great birthday card for any age or gender. You can never have enough "neutral" cards in your stash, can you?

Hope your week is going well and you have time to check out the other Sweet Dreamers projects! They are listed on the sidebar.

Now go out there and Have a Ball!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
