PTI felt and button embellishments

Last week I saw this post by Kristen on the PTI message board. I thought these embellies were darling and wanted to try my hand at them. I cut the NEW PTI black felt with my Big Kick and an old Sizzix die into circles, found some PTI buttons, raided my floss stash for some matching colors and did these while watching tv one night. It was so fun and easy! I added a blanket stitch to the edges.....haven't done THAT stitch in a looong time. It took me a while to get used to it again. I am pretty happy with the way they turned out...

Thanks for looking....and thanks Kristen for the link!


"Compose a Card" challenge number 6

I picked up a new border punch at Michael's yesterday and I wanted to play with it so I figured  I might as well work it into my challenge card for this week. After looking at it, it reminded me of PTI's Dot Spot set so 2 elements of the card were decided fairly easily! Here are the challenge details for this week:

Aren't those colors pretty together? And I love embossing so this was a fun card to play with!

Here is my take on the challenge:

I am sooo enjoying these challenges.....guess I should send some cards instead of hoarding them though huh?!? 

Thanks for looking!
