Sympathy/God's Blessings

The challenge for this weeks Late Night Stampers was to use circles.  By the way, I am now on their Design Team and feel so honored to have been asked.  For the challenge you have to use at least one circle on your card.  That is not so hard is it!  So please play along if you would like. 

So this is the card I decided to do for the challenge.  It is also inspired by this weeks featured stamper on stampin' connection, who is Sandy MacIver.  So I got the two for one deal.  God's blessings is a stamp set that is still current, but I love the saying that are in the stamp set.  They are just right for that occasion when you need something a little more serious.  The button is made by me, using 3/8" round punch and punching out 5 circles from a piece of Baja Breeze card stock and adhering them together.  You can punch the small holes in them using the paper piercer and then cover the button with crystal effects and let dry.  Then you have a button that will match any color card stock you may want to use.  It is so simple and easy.  The hard part is waiting for it to dry so you can use it.  I also used the stamp set just believe for the center under the sentiment.  I actually used baja breeze classic ink, but stamped on another piece of paper prior to stamping it on this so that it would come out lighter, but yet you would see it under the sentiment.  Card stock used was Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla.  The Designer paper is Elegant Soiree.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
