City Crafter Challenge #113

 If you are stopping by for Lawnscaping Challenge (Color Splash), please go here .
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 I have not been feeling particularly creative in the last few days despite the fact that I do post almost every day (LOL)! However, this little blog will have a rest in August. But before August comes along, please bear with me :)

As I was doing my usual blog surfing and visiting this morning, I saw the challenge over City Crafter Challenge, the theme is to make card/project with at least 5 buttons. All of a sudden, I felt the NEED to create a button card. So off I go....

I have been hoarding these tiny buttons for over a year now. Finally I put them into good use.

The stamp set I used is from Clear and Simple Stamp called Craft Room. At first I was going to do some masking, but the jar-pouring idea came to my mind while I was playing. I am pleased with the result. The colorful stripes are stamped with the scrap pieces that came from a different set. It's a GOOD save!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
