I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!  If you would like to sign up for my newsletters please send me an email at pebbles4@ptd.net and I will gladly add your name to my list.  Today I am sharing with you the last of the swap cards I made for a swap in which we were to create cards using up our paper scraps.

This is such an easy card and quick to make too. I think it took me about 25 minutes to make 6 of these cards, honest. I began by scoring two sets of two lines in the middle area of my card.

Next, I pulled out my scrap bin full of left over pieces of Stampin' Up! designer series paper and using various sizes of circle punches I began punching out some circles. The trick to finding dsp that matches is to check the back side. More often than not the reverse sides of the dsp will match and if you happen to have some scraps from the same pack of dsp you'll be good to go.

Lastly, I added my sentiment. This type of card would be great for almost any occasion. You could easily make this into a more feminine card using some flowerly type dsp and perhaps finish it off with some basic pearl or rhinestone gems.

After I had my card made I thought that I should have tied a piece of twine inside the button, but my cards are finished now, but next time I'll remember not to leave a button blank. Have a great rest of the weekend. The weather here in PA is absolutely gorgeous.
