I think I've talked about the great work that the organization Card Cupids does....they are a relatively new org, but offer a great way for crafters to do something to bring a smile to the faces of some brave (yet sick) kids.
I recently sent off my first packet of cards to their cupid cuties...and hope to send some more soon.
In the meantime, they surprised me by having a challenge with giveaways. It amazes me how many of these crafting blogs/orgs do great service and yet spoil us volunteers with goodies.
Anyway, they offered up a challenge to make a card with ribbons and/or buttons.
I have a lot of both, so I wanted to make sure that I forced myself to use some of my inventory and make a cute card that I can eventually send off to Card Cupids for a special munchkin!
It's not my favorite card, but I was able to use some scraps, a leftover die cut (made with the Tim Holtz line at Archivers) and lots and lots of buttons!
