Barbara: WISHES

We want to thank all the wonderful crafters who entered challenge #111,add a ribbon, last week at The Crafty Pad. We had an amazing number of entries and of course so many beautiful paper crafts!! You can check out our winners HERE.
This week our challenge #112, is to add a button/buttons to your craft project.

I decided to make a step card in order to highlight the adorable image from The Crafty Pad. I chose a muted green card stock and a coordinating floral DP. Your might be able to see that I paper pieced the well and the roof covering the well. I also popped up the roof to add dimension. I cut out extra flowers, curled them then added brown pearl centers. The sentiment is computer generated. I colored white buttons with copic markers to make them the orange color then backed them with another flower. You might be able to see some of the dimension on this card in the second picture.
Recipe: CS, DP- Michael's
Image: Debbie at The Crafty Pad
Background Shape: Nestabilities
Sponging: CTMH stamp pad ink
