Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Julie challenged us to make Trash a Treasure. I thought long and hard about what to use because if something is trash, I usually throw it away immediately because as you can imagine, things accumulate quickly when you have small children so I have to keep a close watch on clutter! LOL I came across this button. The shank had broken and the center fell out. I must have set it aside to glue or do something with, but forgot about it. I thought it would work for the challenge. I took all of the color from the button. This is off to Christie! I used Danielle's Sketch Challenge from the weekly challenges at Paper Pretties. Every week Danielle comes up with a great challenge. . .stop by and check them out! Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Wade E. Bug's Love (Paper Pretties), Inque Boutique Lil' Stamp; Paper- Certainly Celery (SU), Nana's Nursery Stack (DCWV), white (Georgia-Pacific); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Accessories- Copic markers, paper piercer, Certainly Celery grosgrain, Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Stardust Stickles
