Cooking With Cricut Challenge: Buttons & Brads

Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blog world!  Today is Design Team challenge day at Cooking With Cricut -- we were asked to use buttons and/or brads on our projects.

I know that sometimes those little embellishments get overlooked in my work space -- and quite often they are the perfect finishing touch to a card or layout.  I created two cards to send with my Mickey banner for my friend Madison's "I Feel the Love" Project.  This month her outreach is to children and teens living in a homeless shelter in Kansas City.  The volunteers throw a big birthday party every month and they need reusable decorations and special birthday cards for the kids.

As you can see these cards are almost identical.  The card on the left has round red brads that I jazzed up with some Stickles and the one on the right has star brads.  These cards measure 4 1/4" wide by 5 1/2" tall.  All of the papers are from my scrap stash.

I also used Stickles on the phrase to give it some glitz!  Here's a better view:

The inside of the card was created using MS Publisher; the font is called "Waltograph."

Now it's your turn!  Link up your buttons and/or brads project at Cooking With Cricut -- you just might be our next Top Chef!  Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my project.  Don't forget . . . we've got a great Blog Hop scheduled for this Saturday, July 21 and Sunday, July 22.  We begin at 8:00 a.m. each day -- two fun-filled days with new projects each day.  And as always, some great giveaways!

The Mickey's are so cute. Love the inside sentiment. What kid and even adults would love these. Great job on the layers. Disney cuts aren't always easy and yours look perfect.
