Playing in Paradise #108 - What's Your Favourite?

Good morning! Seriously, what could be more fun than using your favourite things on a project? It's your choice - favourite colour, technique, embellishments, and so on. That's what Dawn wants us to do for this week's Playing in Paradise challenge!

I have so many favourites that I really just went a little nutty...and once again ended up with a different card than I'd envisioned:

Supplies: papers from Pink Paislee; stamp from Stampabilities (from sweet JJ!); Faded Jeans distress ink; Versamark; white & clear embossing powder from Stampendous; vintage buttons; pearl strips from Dollarama

Some of my favourites used here - BUTTONS! of course, patterned paper, pearls, embossing, Distress ink. 

I love the shine on these buttons!


This challenge will be open until next Thursday, March 21st.  To add your NEW project to the linky & see what the rest of  the team has created, click on over to the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog, and check out the DT on their blogs too:
