Cute as a button

Here's the sweetest image ever from artist Sherri Baldy!  There's a wonderful contest going on over at Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog.  This challenge is to create a shaped card.  Here's my card for the current challenge using an adorable image with a purple and yellow combo (and a hint of orange too!).

Totally some of my favorite colors and a bunch of my favorite embellishments as well, buttons and flowers with a little bling and die cuts!

Out of curiosity, do any of you scrapbook? do you scrapbook as much as you make cards or vice versa?  I guess since I don't have kids (due to all the medical problems that weren't fixed until age 40), so I rarely scrapbook unless we had a vacation or some other special event.  Of course there's a lot of overlap in the materials we use card makers and scrapbookers....

Have you checked the winner list?  CLICK HERE...lots of the winners haven't sent an email yet with their email or their address, so please do!!  Also, if you haven't signed up each day, be sure you do so, as the candy winners are currently chosen up through Feb 7th, so you are welcome to leave comments on the remaining days during the month to be eligible for the remaining prizes!

It is so bright and beautiful!!
I wish I could scrapbook more than I do, but I have not enogh stuff for this, also it is a problem to get any rubber stamps for cardmaking here even..

Rosalee said...

Love, love, love the image. Definitely the right title for this post.
I used to scrapbook but I haven't for at least 3 years. My kids scrapbooks are so behind you have no idea. Wish there was some way to get me to do it again.
Hugs, Rosalee

wow! I love this cute girl! The card is adorable!!
Well, to get a time for scrapbooking is not easy if you are working 12 hours per day daily, plus the time to come back home, cook, clean, etc... But I try to make anything on weekends if this is a day off (seldom)... Of course to use any special punches, masks, stencils, etc. would help a lot, but I have not any, and this makes me sad.. But the creation gives me so much good emotions in any way. :)

riliska said...

Yes, it is really cute! The buttons maybe so bright and good as like this card is..
I wish I had some Copics to colour the same.. I love the cardmaking and scrapbooking, but scrapbooking demands a lot of special stuffs as like the papers, embellishments to be done as well and be interesting in the end..

Pat said...

I LOVE this card, Holley. Yes, they are totally yours colors! I do scrapbook. I used to create layouts more than I did cards, but scrapbooking takes chunks of dedicated time, while cards are fast. So I usually only scrapbook when I can run away with my photos and supplies for a whole day or even a weekend crop.

Like your shaped card and the colors you chose. I don't scrapbook, only make cards and other projects.

This is my kind of card!!!! Love it!! the yellow and purple combo is so bright and cheery and I love all your embellishments. I am a die hard scrapbooker, I've been scrapbooking for 17+ years, I started when my son was born. I did do cardmaking as well for a few years, but I didn't love it as much as scrapbooking so now I mostly only scrapbook.

LOVE this colorful card! I am not a scrapbooker mainly because none of us likes our picture taken. I am trying to get at least one or two pictures of the grandchildren and their daddies whenever we get together though! I have had to become quite inventive on ways to get them to allow me to take pictures but they are getting better about it!
I love making cards, altered art and am starting to get into painting. Talk to you soon!

Great colour combo! I am mainly a cardmaker

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

This one is my favorite so far. I love the purples with the yellow. The way you colored the flowers on the image is awesome. As for the answer to your question. Not much scrapbooking for me... I dabble every now and then.

Thecla W said...

jane stillman said...

A beautiful shaped card, gorgeous colours, image and embellishments x

L. Kent said...

Love the shape of the card. Started as a scrapbooker and it led to cards also. Mostly doing cards right now but have a lot of scrapbooking I want to do.

Laine said...

She is such a cutie pie Holley. I love the color palette, may have to 'borrow' this, watch this space. I have done scrapbooking. I made memory books for both my girls and a family history a few years ago.

Hi Holley this is such a cute image I love how you have used it. Hugs Jackie

Andree said...

A gorgeous card Holley. The colour palette is amazing and the image is a delight.
I always intend to scrapbook but never seem to find the time. I've only ever managed a few small ones for my youngest daughter x

DJ said...

Cards, tags, scrapbook, journals, mixed media I do it all as well as knit and crochet and needlework. I love this bright yellow card

Kay Dalton said...

oh thats so cute, love the colours and what you have done with it x

paulaj said...

what a fun card! It is so unusual - probably too many things to mention, but I'll try - love the colors, shapes connected, lacy edges, cute image, flowers, buttons - so many things I need to try or do again! Thanks for the inspiration!

RoseyHearts said...

This is fantastic you did a great job with those colors!

Shelley said...

Purple and yellow, who knew? Wonderful!! Now we all know and I vow to try yellow with my purples instead of cream. Nope, no scrapbooking for me.

Cindy said...

I usually scrapbook more than make I make cards. I guess my thing about cards is you do all this awesome work for someone to toss it in the bin in the next few days as with a layout it is forever in my album. I only make cards for a few really special people in my life that I know cherish them.

Nikki C said...

Holley this looks just adorable
and I'm not really a scrapbooker at all mainly cards I don't mind making the odd layout page for a scrapbook but they aren't for me when I do
hugs Nikki

Love your card and the beautiful colors you have chosen. So colorful!!

Amy#8546(TheTigersHaven) said...

Adorable card. This is a really cute Image and I love the colors you chose. I have done some scrapbooking but not alot. I make cards and tags more and lately I have been messing around with other things like mixed media on canvas. I also want to try other things. But I am more to make a card than scrapbook.

Jennifer Bradley said...

Beautiful card love the shape and fab colours. Hugs Jennifer xx

I scrap more than I make cards and am also now playing with mixed media canvases. A little of everything. Such a cute card! Love your coloring!

ShersL84bed said...

Adorable shaped card Holley. I'm trying to imagine where you put your fold?

Susan Slomski said...

That is awesome! I wouldn't know how to mail that though but it is still awesome. I love the colors. I scrapbook more than card making although it isn't a huge difference since I have 12 grandchildren alone, (13th will be here any day). I am forever making cards since it is always someone's birthday.

SHartl said...

Oh my, this card is so adorable! Love the purple and yellow together and you're right about that being the cutest image ever!! I do scrapbook a little, but with 2 young kids I usually have to stick to quick projects, like cards!

cebelica said...

Oh my, this is so cute! <3 And such beautiful colours! I love it!
I like scrapbooking a lot. I don't do many layouts, but I really enjoy making mini albums. And journals. However, I still make more cards.

hugs! xx

Karenladd said...

Beautiful colors as always and what a cute image! Just makes me want to give her a little squeeze!! I do scrapbook, but not as often as I would like. I started out as a scrapbooker but have basically turned into a card maker.

Teresa said...

I used to scrapbook a lot but since I started my DT work I don't often find the time...I love to take photographs and have 1000s!!

Janie Boots said...

How cute is this?!?!?? I don't scrapbook that much anymore once in a while I do

Stacy H-W said...

I can't even tell you how much I adore this image Holley! I love, love, love the colors you used! The yellow and purple are beautiful together! I do scrapbook. I love to scrapbook and I probably scrapbook more than I make cards.

L. Tagg said...

This shaped card is awesome! As for scrapbook vs card making...card making wins over every time! Not sure why though...with 5 children I have a lot of pictures that should be scrapbooked!

Scrapbook Blessings Club said...

In the middle of winter, these bright colors make me happy :) I started with scrapbooking, went to cards and now starting Project Life. Just got to keep evolving!

Wonderful Card! It's so bright andcheerful. The colors really work together!

Gail Behrle said...

I love Sherri Baldy and I love purple, so this is a card for me!! So beautiful. All the elements work perfectly together. I started scrapbooking then started making cards. Now I make more cards than scrapbooks.
