CDBC7 - Pearls, Bling and Button Things

CLEARLY DELIGHTFUL BLOG CHALLENGE #7
(use keyword CDBC7)
Sponsored by Doodle Pantry digital doodles!
Happy 4th, everyone! I have a treat for you today. The Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge is being posted a day early this month. This month's theme is pearls, bling and button things. It's easy to join in the challenge:
  • Just create something new following this month's theme -- use either pearls, bling or buttons, or all three. Although we would love to see Doodle Pantry images, you may use any manufacturer's stamps or digital images on your creation.
  • Then, post a direct link to your creation, using Mr. Linky, on Laurie's Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge Page.
  • Also, you must leave a comment on the Clearly Delightful blog post ... Don't forget to mention whether you want Laurie to email you the Pasque Flower or the Digging Ant digital image (your free gift just for participating)!
  • Only one entry per person, please. Deadline for submission is Monday, July 19.
Here's my card for the challenge:
For my sample, I used the cherry image and one of the sentiments from the Doodle Pantry Set called Oranges and Cherries. This is one of the new sets just released by Doodle Pantry. To meet this month's theme, buttons (my favorite embellishment) became "button cherries" and I also added 3 black rhinestones to the upper left-hand corner of my image panel. How fun and easy.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that one randomly selected participant will win a prize package of approximately $35 worth of card making/scrapping supplies. Now how cool is that... For more challenge details, great samples, and photos of July's featured images and prize package, click HERE.
Sure hope you play along with us. Can't wait to see your creations. Have a super week!
Update: Doodle Pantry is having a sale through July 7. To receive 25% off entire cart be sure to enter code DP4JULY25. This offer even includes the new release images!
