Over at the DCM blog we have the latest challenge which was set by Keryn as follows:
I know you've all got buttons stashed away somewhere, whether they've been purchased at a cardmaking store or you thriftily snipped them off DH's old shirt. I'd like you to find those buttons and use them somewhere on a card. They can be real buttons, craft shop buttons, die cut buttons, faux buttons or another type of button, surprise us all.
Using a white hammered card base, I used some free Junkitz papers that I got free with a magazine recently, cutting on the wavy line to add effect. Buttons were from my stash that I used to make a flower, stem and leaf. Added a few buttons down the left hand side, again to emphasise the patterns in the paper. Journalled some words in colour and black.
I've really missed doing the challenges these last few weeks, so have decided to set myself the challenge to catch up.... I only have the Frilly Bits and the Dot, dot, dot, dash, dash, dash challenges to do now. I'm off to upload my other cards now.
