Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Friday! Well, this is the first time I'm participating in the Papertrey Blog Hop! I wasn't planning on it, but the card I made fits the challenge so I thought I'd enter it. My card also qualifies for the Make It Monday Challenge #3. Here's my card.
I just adored the new Button Boutique stamp set and coordinating dies for the set. I used the block die to cut some pretty new paper I purchased this week at AC Moore. It's from K&Company called Madeline. It reminded me of chintz fabric...perfect for this pinked-edged block. The buttons were cut from Vintage Cream and stamped with the four different button stamps from Button Boutique. I used Certainly Celery and Purely Pomegranate. The Pomegranate ink is a second generation stamping to get the lighter color I wanted. The buttons were strung with some floss in coordinating colors. I also made a strip of glitter using scor-tape and glitter. This was this week's Make It Monday challenge. The sentiment is from Star Prints and was stamped in black Versafine ink. For the blog hop challenge, you were to use scallops on your card. Can you see my scalloped buttons?

Here is a closeup of the glitter strip in case you can't see it.
Of course, I needed a sketch to follow! The Splitcoast sketch this week is what gave me the idea for this card. Now that I'm looking at it, I think I was supposed to have a different color paper above the glitter strip...too late now! And I love the way this card came together! How about you?

Thanks for stopping in today! I'll back tomorrow with a really cool 3D/Technique challenge from Just Us Girls, so make sure you stop by!
