SCRSC39: Handmade Embellishment

Hi everyone! Today I have my Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge make to share! This week we are challenging you to add a handmade embellishment to your project.

I used Surfing Oliver stamp and followed this week's Cardabilities #29 sketch for my DT make.  Sparkle is sponsoring this week's Cardabilities challenge #29 with a fabulous prize package comprising Eight 6x6 sheets of the new and yummy Crate Paper Portrait Collection, coordinating buttons, prima flowers, 3 yards of ribbon AND Cupcake Ruby and Charlotte with a Rose SCRS rubber stamps! WOW!

My handmade embellishment is my buttons. I simply used a small circle punch to punch out 2 discs of patterned paper, inked the edges with some brown chalk ink, pierced 2 button holes in each 'button' with my SU pokey tool, then threaded some SU twine through, tied it, and voila!  Also, as I didn't have the correct punch to make the edging detail of the middle strip, I simply cut out pieces of brown card using my Labels 4 nesties and then glued them to the back of the white strip!

Sparkle Creations challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen, and they will receive a SCRS rubber stamp. [In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation.]

Why not do as I have done and combine your SCRS challenge entry with this week's Cardabilities sketch to double your chances of winning some lovely Sparkle Creations rubber? The prize over at Cardabilities is
