I still had these colors out on my desk so I thought I'd use them again. The challenge today was to use edge trimming scissors...I dug out an old pair of pinking edge scissors and as soon as I started using them I remembered why I didn't use them very often. I'm just edge-scissor challenged I guess....had a hard time getting a straight edge. I also wanted to use my sewing themed stamps so I rolled a panel with the stitches wheel and stamped and layered some buttons. I punched holes in the buttons and also added some crystal effects and popped them on dimensionals to give more of a true button feel to them.

Oh, oh, OH!! This is adorable!! Love the long shape, the great stitch & button stamps, the bright colors, and that FAB fat rick-rack. (I agree on the reason you don't use the decorative scissors very often--I can't cut straight with them, either). What a delightful card. :)
