Living on the Edge

Happy Thursday!

Today is my day over at 365 Cards...and today's Challenge is:

Living on the Edge

Decorate the edges of at least 3 sides of the card.

In true "Amy Form" I sent Pam 2 cards...The one above was my first one and this one is my "stepped up" version:

My brain is always "clicking" with ideas...even "d" has noticed that...the other day in his car I was really looking at his newer Starbucks travel mug...it has a coolio design and he mentioned that he knew that my ole brain was working overtime....Anywho's....I was thinking of my card and when I woke up on Wednesday morning..yup, at 3 a.m., I immediately went upstairs to pop the ribbon on my card and "aaahhhh" everything was beh-tah, kwim?

No surprise that the pattern paper is Sassafras...the cardstock is Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie...you had to have noticed all those buttons...I splurged and bought the vintage button collection over at PTI...I just adore buttons...

Okay, show me what you got ladies...

P.S. Have you got Cutting Cafe Week marked on your calendars? Beginning this Sunday, May 24th, we will begin featuring some wonderful printable images on our cards that you will not want to miss. And of course there will be a prize winner at the end of the week!!

I love it Amy! I so wanted to copy your card as well and use buttons down the sides etc but couldn't copy your card especially in the same challenge. . . I would be struck down lol. I absolutely loved the release at PTI this month and was just saying to Vicky the very same thing. Their vintage release it beautiful which is the buttons you have. I think I may be doing some ordering down the track a bit when I get the money.

Great card Amy, I love those buttons but I love any buttons. I am glad I am not the only one who gets up in the night to do stuff, I am a little tired tonight as I was up at 4-30 am this morning (thursday)and it is now 12-15 am (Friday) bet I am still up at the crack of dawn tomorrow
