Happy Anniversary and a New Paper Maniac Challenge

This first card is for the new challenge over at the Paper Maniac Blog you do not want to miss out on this one because you will have a chance to win a cuttlebug embossing folder or a spellbinder impressibilities.

The Challenge:
Faux stitching but you can do the real thing if you prefer
Odd shaped button.

So for my card I seriously had so much fun doing this challenge . I added texture anywhere I could pit it on this card. I embossed my Dp and I have been seeing these fun flowers around the blogs so had to try it. There is a tutorial here on how to do this fun flower.

Embossing Folder -Victoria
Also while I am at it I am going to enter this into a challenge blog called Raise The Bar
the first challenge is to use something new on your card and pretty much everything on this card is new from the Paper maniac store also the flower is a new technique for me.

This last card I did a couple weeks ago and it was for a graduation party not your usual graduation card but it was for a friend's daughter so I took advantage and did it really girly. I used Basic Grey's Orgins collection and the sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe.
