Be Faithful in the Little things

Hello, thanks for stopping by.  Today's post is a response to a Challenge posted on Lisa Somerville's blog for a Blog Hop ( you hop like a little green frog from blog to blog enjoying the cards made in answer to the challenge along the way).  And if you're a spirited little blog frog who really feels like having fun, you create your own card and enter the challenge with us! (using the link below the cards in the blog)
The challenge is to make a card using the technique or media listed in a straight line of the Tic Tac Toe board.

For my design, I used the line starting in the lower bottom left corner, middle lower space and right lower corner.  So my card is made with:  Buttons, Die Cut Punches and Ribbon/Seam Binding.

The sentiment for today's card is from one of my favorite Stamp Companies which has just celebrated their third anniversary, Our Daily Bread Designs.  The sentiment is embossed with Color Riser Embossing powder.  The pink, purple, turquoise and sunflower hues were created with Pan Pastels on white card stock,  The die cuts for the sentiment are Nestabilities label 10 and the matching stamps for the die cuts are from Waltzing Mouse and are called Vintage Labels 10.   The turquoise label is embossed with Craft Essentials Embossing Powder.  Waltzing Mouse is (for me) a newly discovered stamp line from Ireland! The purple label is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot.  The white background is embossed with the Cuttlebug Heritage folder.  The cornice punch at the top is EK Success Flourish Scroll Edge and the Buterflies are punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch.
Have fun blog hopping along enjoying the beautiful sights at the other blogs.

Love your sentiment- and love the butterflies and the way the ribbon is looped thru the button. Great card!
