The Corrosive Challenge #156 - Cute as a Button

As many of you know, I just LOVE Saturated Canary!  And I ADORE Halloween!  Put the two together and I'm over the moon!  They're like chocolate and peanut butter!  All sweet and yummy!  I buy them like they're penny candy, and I'm almost embarrassed to admit how many I have amassed in less than a year!  I can't help myself... Krista's darling images are cute as a button!  And, appropriately enough, that is the theme of our new Corrosive Challenge this fortnight!  We challenge you to create something that is "Cute as a Button"!  So all you need to do to play along is use an image that is cute and include at least one button on your project.  Saturated Canary is our fabulous sponsor this month as well! 

My card is, of course, a Halloween card.  I used Krista's cute Rags and Witches image. After I had the card all together I realized that this image is retired, but never fear!  She has three other delightful witch images in her shop currently (Elphie, Fly Girl and Witchkeys) with more on the way in her release this Thursday!  Paper are from last year's DCWV Midnight Spell stack.  I thought the current sketch over at Mojo Monday (#254) looked fun!  I have a thing for fishtail banners lately (made using my Die-namics die by My Favorite Things)!  I stayed very true to the sketch, but I did add my black sparkly button to the grosgrain ribbon with some baker's twine.  The sentiment is from a Waltzingmouse Stamps set called Midnight Feast.  I also did a little "deconstructed doodling" on my image panel for a little something extra.

Here are a few close-ups of the details.  I was playing around with my photo editing and discovered I have a "polaroid" option!  So cool!

Please head over to The Corrosive Challenge to see what the rest of my amazing design team has created for this challenge, and be sure to play along for your chance to win 2 Saturated Canary digi images of your choice AND the chance to be our guest designer for October!

I am off to a day at the zoo with the small man shortly!  He is so excited!  Special thanks to Jasmine of Wasted Scraps for making sure things ran smoothly and the challenge was ready on time today!  I had a busy weekend with a concert last night so she helped me out!  I hope you have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
