Pure Joy

Happy Monday to you!  This post comes to live from the beach!  The girls and I are having a little down time before we gear up for the new school year but don't want to neglect my responsibilities while away so I am here to share with you my card for Elizabeth  Mae's Designs this week. 

We have a "Cute as a Button" theme so interpret as you may and come join us!  I used the Baby Girl Sidney because I thought she was as cute as button.  I didn't get the stamp with this sentiment in time so I am using a few rub-on's with lots of buttons.  :-)

I bought a  new Copic that matches this SU mint green paper.  I know they retired it but I have so much!  I used to love this color when I first started crafting.  The Copic color that matches it nicely is BG34.  So now you know,either buy it if you like it or steer clear if you don't .  LOL! 
I am still plugging away at my scraps.  The large gingham print (The Girls' Paperie) was cut and angled with a large scallop die cut that had print on it but I covered with a large circle (Paper Trey Ink) I punched out and added the round rub-on by combing "pure" and the word "joy".  I like cutting my rub-ons to make my own.    A tiny remanent of lace with buttons was added and then Sidney was popped up with foam dots.  Lastly, a few rhinestones and little line about fingers and toes was applied.  I stitched around the panel and applied to a white cardstock base.
