Busy Saturday, or lazy Saturday? Another post, another challenge

I could not help it, doing the challenges this afternoon was so much fun, I just have to show you another one I did that was for the same three challenges.  I checked, I can do that :)

This card also met the challenges at Colour Q #147 using the colors (I did sub Indigo Blue and Wild Wasabi on this one), and Diva Dare for "Birthday", and Stampin' Royalty for using "Buttons". 
I think this one turned out so cute.
Love, love, love the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set.  You just can't go wrong when you can stamp an image, and it's all colored, and has beautiful images that really don't need any embellishments.  I couldn't resist adding the big Baha Blue button I had in my collection, which was my inspiration for the whole card.  Can you believe that I have been hanging on to that big button?  When I started looking at buttons today for the Stampin' Royalty challenge, I thought "I've got the button, now what stamp set can I coordinate this button into?  Betsy's Blossom had the biggest flower I have got!"   So, that's how inspiration strikes!?! LOL!  Can't get easier than that for a fast and simple card.  Only work I really had here was cutting out a couple flowers and a bird, and I did not really have to do that.  I could have just stamped them!   So sweet and simple, and will make a great card for my Open House display.  I have some customers that want really easy projects and this sure is right up that alley.
Well, back to crafting.  Come back again, soon.

  1. Wow, three challenges in one. Great job! Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week.

    1. It was so much fun. I have been working on samples for a big workshop coming up in Aug that I needed to turn in samples, and I needed to make new projects to show at our Holiday catalog open house. With all the different projects, and stamps, and new paper, I was getting overwhelmed. The challenges spiced it up a bit.
