WooHoo! The day has finally come!

It is finally the BIG day! We are lounching the new challenge blog over at The PaperShelter! We are starting up with a nice and simple challenge for you all:

Buttons and Bows

That means we want to see both of them somewere in your creation and you must use a PaperShelter image to be in the price draw. The store is filled with wonderfully cute, fun and sweet images. There is something for everyone. The price you can win? Oh, it's a wopping $15 gift certificate to use in The PaperShelter store.

For this challenge I have used the ooohh so cute "Toy Train". Fell in love with it from the first second I layed my eye on it. However being such a long image I really had to get out of my comfort zone to get the card together. I used designer papers from Sandy Lion, the Thomas the Tank engine collection. If you look real careful at the red papers you should see some trains there. I didn't have any lucky when it came to the weather and taking my photo so it's a bit hard to see, but it's there. I used buttons for the wheels of my little train and the cute little elephant needed a little bow around his neck I thought. In the corners I've used CardCraft cardcandy in dark blue.

With this said you really should pop over to the challenge blog and see what my fellow team gals and guy have created to get your creativity going! There is some stunning samples there. The challenge will be weekly and I do hope to see you there! There is some great challenges waiting to come up as well, but we start up with this one buttons and bows. Come on and join the fun now!

Take care and love n hugs for you all!

Hi Marie! Where do I start? Love, love, LOVE this! Those button wheels are truly genius! Also, you used all the images in the set, which must have made this card a lot of work, but oh so worth the effort. Fabulous! Thank you for creating a wonderful card for our kick-off challenge;D Hugz, Cheryl
