I missed last week's The Cat's Pajamas Challenge, but to make up for it, I created this week's challenge card on the day it was posted... Tuesday! This week's challenge is hosted by Amy, who is kicking off a new category of challenges... a supply challenge.

Amy challenged us to us buttons on a card. Now, normally, I am not a button-on-a-card kind of person, because I usually make cards that are flat so I can mail them. But for this card, since it is already gonna be bulky with one button, I decided to use a bunch of buttons. Actually, I had the design for this card sketched out and on my messy table, with the intention of having it for the Haunted Hop we had a couple of weeks ago. However, things came up at the last minute and I ran out of time so I didn't get my card done. I am thrilled that I have an excuse to complete the card.

I used 7 buttons! Count 'em!

Stuff used:
Stamps: Slanted House, Batty, Ghosts, Halloween Candy, and sentiment all from the "Fright Night" set by The Cat's Pajamas
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin' Up Summer Sun, Only Orange, Basic Black
Ink: Versafine Onxy Black; Stampin' Up Markers in Summer Sun, Barely Banana, Only Orange, Almost Amethyst
Other: Hocus Pocus buttons from The Cat's Pajamas, lavender sewing thread from my sewing room, mini glue dots
