SUO Challenge #50

Thought I'd do a little challenge today from the SU Only blog.   The brief was buttons & brads.   And because it's SU only, the rules are that you can only use Stampin' Up! products.  Well, naturally, that's easy for me!

Here it is:



The paper I've used here will retire at the end of August, as all our DSP does when we get a new catalogue in September.    It's called Berry Blossoms.   I quite like the colour combination of Lucky Limeade & Calypso Coral with the ever favourite Early Espresso & Whisper White to crisp everything up.

My buttons are SU, although they're all from a pack that was retired some time back.    I've used the Blossom Punch to do the flower, with the Scallop Circle & 5-Petal Flower Punches in the middle.  The Stripes embossing folder was used in the Big Shot.   I crushed the cardstock accidentally - my Big Shot needs that particular folder on "no tabs" rather than "tab 1", and I almost always forget, but I guess it means I got a bit of extra texture for free!

Happy Thursday!
