Welcome to Monday Morning Challenge, where we offer up a challenge, and share with you our designers take on that challenge. Today we asked our designer to use 6 of the same type of embellishment on their projects.
“Catch Me If You Can”, by Diane Payne.
Buttons are one of my most favorite embellishments of all time so I thought it would be fun to use those for the challenge of using 6 of the same item. I like how the wood buttons looked along the sand so I lined them up under the photo and tied it all together using DMC thread in coordinating colors. For an extra special touch I added hand-stitching to the cloud paper and for part of my title. The simplicity of the design allows the photos, buttons and stitching to shine.

"You're My Favorite Little Spook", by Yohko Takiguchi.
The Paper Pieces is one of my favorites in the new collection! For this challenge, I chose 6 die cuts from Trick or Treat Paper Pieces. I started by layering these die cuts on the background. I love word stickers and tabs! I added some stickers and tabs from the Alpha+Bits sheets and Trick or Treat Tabs.

"Life Is Better With You" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
OK so I probably didn't challenge myself very hard here! :) The challenge is to use 6 of the same type of embellishment, so I used 6 stickers here. And that is so easy with all the cute stickers in the new Bella Blvd lines! I used 2 scalloped circle stickers, 2 banner/pennant stickers, and 2 photo corner stickers. Easy! The 2 small flowers were cut out of sheet of paper from the new "Play Date" line. Thanks for looking!

"Mom, You Are The Best" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
On this card I used 6 different buttons from my Button Market stash. These flower buttons are such fun embellishments for a girly card! The paper, die cuts, and stickers I used here are from the new Snapshots and Daily Chevies & Everyday Bits lines. And I've got a Mother's Day card to add to my stash (you know, in case it sneaks up on me in May like it usually does!). Thanks for looking!
