ATS Button Challenge

Happy Wednesday! It's time for another ATS Challenge. This week's challenge is to use buttons in a creative way. For my card, I used Bitzy Bugz Tubby Time by C.C. Designs, and the buttons are the tub feet!

I used BasicGrey Euphoria paper and buttons. I machine stitched around the blue patterned paper. I paper pieced the tub and colored the little bug with Copics. For the bubbles, I used Liquid Applique sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter, and I heat puffed it when dry. The sentiment is from the C.C. Designs set Sweet Treats. I finished the card with some Primas and white organdy ribbon.


If you want to play along with our button challenge, use keyword ATSDTC11 when uploading to SCS, ATS, or another public gallery. We'd love to see what you create!

I had planned to start the previews of the August C.C. Designs sets tomorrow, but Christine had to postpone the release a week. So, I'll have the previews for you starting next Thursday! I guess that means I'll have to whip up something else to share with you! ;) Thanks for visiting today -- I always appreciate it! Have a great day!
