It's a one, two, three Challenge

over at the Shabby Tea Room. Yep, one ribbon, two buttons and three punches or dies. I have not played in a while...you all know how it is to have kids out of school for the summer ;D. My girls started school back last week and I had some play time....YEAH!!!! So here is what I came up with

Grace and Peace........


Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Basic Grey Cappella, Best Occasions Textured cs

Stamps: ODBD Scripture Series 1

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Antique Linen

Accessories: Nesties Labels 4, Petite Ovals Large, Petite Scalloped Ovals Large, 2 antique buttons, hand dyed seam binding, ZVA Creative Taupe Rhinestone Flourish Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, mini paper roses

So, what do you think?

I know the buttons I used are not traditional, but I assure you they are buttons and I did thread them on the seam binding through their shank on the back. To make them stay in place I added a little foam tape. ;D;D;D.

Well, this is it for today, short and sweet :D.

Thanks for stopping by my friends, it means a lot to me knowing that you come and visit me.

Have a fabulous and creative day!!

Oh WOW! Your card is a piece of art. Sabrina, your cards are always one better then the last............how is that possible. As for the button. I know that they are. I have seen them in the store and I thought of you. There were more buttons like the style that you used. Every time I am at JoAnns and I see thse buttons I think of you and how you would make one of your gorgeous cards using them.

Don't work too hard. :)

Hey Sabrina

I love love your card. It is really prettily stunning! I am still learning how to make a vintage distress card without making it too dirty and I really appreciate the inspiration you gave me. And I love those buttons!!

Thanks for dropping by my blog with your encouraging comments! Have a blessed day Sabrina :-)

Hi Sabrina~

Yummy card! I love the spray of flowers. And the buttons are gorgeous! Who said card makers and crafters have to use anything conventional? LOL

I really like the design of rhinestones, as well as the platform shapes of paper you used. The focus-that beautiful Scripture is really something. Worth everyone's attention.
