Belated Birthday Wishes - C4C #79

Happy Saturday! Hope you're ready for another fun challenge! Silke Ledlow is our host again today at Crazy 4 Challenges and she's chosen a great color combo for us today.

Pretty, huh? This is the first chance I've had to play with some new PTI stuff--I've had it almost a month, so it's about time, right?

First of all, I stamped Background Basics: Newsprint on a Kraft base with Dark Chocolate ink. Then I added the sentiment from Mat Stack 3 at the very bottom. Next, I stamped a piece of Hibiscus Burst card stock with Background Basics: Tin Types and more Dark Chocolate ink. After I cut the border with a Medium Scallop die, I tied a Hawaiian shores twill bow around.

For the button card (OMGosh, but I LOVE this concept!!)), first I die cut the card from Rustic White card stock, then stamped the two elements with more Dark Chocolate, then sewed the buttons on. Finally, I popped it up on some foam and it was done! I'm loving it!

Okey dokey, that's it for me! Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C79.
