Fabulous Friday Inspiration!

Happy Friday bloggers!
The week is just flying by- in fact this whole month has flown by! I can't believe that first it's Halloween, then so soon Thanksgiving, and Christmas is hiding right around the corner!

I have an awesome card to share with you from designer Lucy Abrams. Lucy always has fresh and fun projects on her blog, and her blogging style is so inspiring! Recently, she featured a Button Tree Card that we just had to pass along to all of you!

Don't you see?! I told you Lucy was full of inspiration for us! ;) This Button Tree Card looks so intricate- and believe it or not it doesn't even have a single stamp on it!

Lucy used her favorite cloud paper (you could use My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad Away We Go or Magnolia's 12x12 sheet Cloudy Sky) and then cut it with the Spellbinders Blossom Nestability.



She placed the cloud paper onto a Hero Arts Foliage Green Notecard that had been covered with Hero Arts Foliage Green Buttons- and you're done!

I personally think the ribbon, the stitching additions, and the corners being rounded really set the card over the top with the details. I've been noticing rounded corners on cards a lot lately- the We R Memory Keepers Cropadile Corner Chomper is great for finishing up the corners.

Thanks again Lucy for sharing your talent! Be sure to check out her blog too for additional perspectives on creativity!

  16. When your are sporty, or when having a great time at the dancing floor, or a romantic evening with your sweetheart, on each event you are in different mood. Perfumes reflect that mood variance, and without having to be loud, the perfume silently makes the presence felt. Visit www.rightshopping.in/perfume/index.asp
