Paper Players Challenge #87 - CAS with Buttons

Hello friends.  Nance Leedy at The Paper Players have come up with challenge that I just couldn't pass up.  This weeks challenge from Nance is to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using buttons.  Clean and simple is usually right up my alley - but buttons aren't something I typically think to use when I'm putting together a card.  Love the look of them on a card though - so perfect time to "think" to use them in the creative process.  Here is the card I am submitting for this challenge. Thanks Nance for the opportunity to play with the Paper Players this week.

This is another card that I used the NEW and COMING SOON "Summer Smooches" DSP on.  Orange is such a happy energetic color for me and I really love purple and orange together.  It's one of my favorite combos.  I just know you are going to love this new DSP! 

Here are the details on this card - Supplies (all are from Stampin Up! except Copic markers): Cardstock - Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White.  DSP - NEW and COMING SOON "Summer Smooches".  Stamps - The Nicest Things (girls) and Just Believe (friends).  Flowers are made using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (122464).  Buttons are from the Brights  Designer Buttons collections (119747) and a couple pink ones from my retired stash. I couldn't resist putting a few teeny pearls from the Basic Pearls (   ) on there too.  The image is one of the first ones I colored with Copic markers.  It has sat on my work table for quite a while waiting for me to find a card to put it on.  I love when I'm able to use spare parts or "changed my mind" elements at some later time when the idea is right.   

Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you so leave me a note if you saw something you liked. Make it a great day!
