Button Buddies - Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge

Welcome to another week of the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! What a great sketch!! Button Buddies is a set I wanted when it was first released and somehow I kept passing it up. I finally got it around the holidays but still haven't used it and now I think I better use it before the next catalog release (which is 53 days away - but who's counting)?

As you may have heard, Stampin' Up! has released the Color Refresh Chart - where we will be losing a few of our favorites, keeping some in-colors, and getting back some of our older favorites that went away. 

I chose to use Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade, and Early Espresso in this card. Sadly we will be losing Regal Rose and Lucky Limeade at the end of May.  I kept this card fairly simple - no embossing (and believe me I tried!), fussy cutting, or crazy tricks - just some layers and stamping! I did use the Big Shot to cut the ovals but that's it! I popped the flag up with some dimensionals and added a ribbon and some Rhinestone Jewels. I love the how the Rhinestone Jewels add that finishing touch!

Don't forget  to check out the talent in our design team and we'd love to see what you create with this sketch!
