Cute as a Button


Hi everyone.  Today's Corrosive Challenge is a easy one.  It is called Cute as a Button. All you have to do to participate is use buttons on your project.  Our sponsor this month is Saturated Canary.  Krista has some of the best images around.  SC has become one of my favorites. 

I decided to use my niece and namesake Rebecca as my inspiration.  She recently had a baby and it isn't going well.  Baby Zoe still hasn't come home from the hospital.  She ended up having lots of medical problems and is on my mind constantly.  A few months ago I went to visit Becca and she had an adorable piece of blue hair.  It is gone now but I really liked it so I added it to my image.  I colored her with Copics, cut her out and popped her up on SU dimensionals.  The image had cute little pom poms added to the blanket.  I put liquid applique on it to puff them up. 

My thoughts go out to Becca and Zoe and hope that Zoe goes home soon.  Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and see what the rest of the design team has created for your inspiration.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Such a super sweet card Rebecca. Lovely coloring, the blue streak is awesome. Fun pom poms on the blanket. Sorry to hear that baby Zoe isn't doing well. Really hoping she improves and comes home soon. Will keep mom and baby in my thoughts.

Absolutely beautiful! I have to say I didn't care for Becca's blue stripe but it looks pretty good here. The puff balls are such a cute addition too.

This is just precious. I love the blue streak in her hair. I don't get the little white dots or balls on the blanket, but other than that it's gorgeous. The face on the image is just so sweet.

I have tried to leave comments on this card since you first posted it. I'm gonna give it a try again. The card was absolutely beautiful! I think that the girls hair in the image looks way better then mine did, but I am glad that I gave you that inspiration to color her that way! I would also like to thank you Aunt Becky, and everyone that prayed for my sweet baby girl and I, God does amazing things everyday, and no doubt in my mind that this was his work!She is now 6 months old and pushing 20 lbs, and healthier then ever! I had so many people pulling for her, friends, family and even people I didn't know. and again thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!
