Hello, today I want to share with you a project that I had the pleasure of making as part of a friendly challenge set up by my friend and fellow Designer Carmi Cimicata who challenged a group of women including myself to make anything we wanted with this one Button blank.  It is a beautiful vintage (I think) piece that looks silver and is encrusted with rhinestones.  After some pondering, I decided to go with my first instinct and add a cat to the blank.  I don't know if it's my love of cats that inspired me or the bling around the edge as my cat loves anything shiny.  Here is my project:

I made this with some pieces of lace, and ribbon I had in my bag of scraps.  I just used fabric glue to adhere the layers of lace and ribbon.  I filled the blank with a dab of clear DecoArt™ Liquid Glass, a punched out circle made from green glitter cardstock, with part of a cat Sticker from Little B™.  I used the Liquid glass to cover and fill the blank instead of using a heavier glass dome.

Once the liquid glass had set, I folded and sewed the ends of the bookmark.  I then sewed the blank to the top of the marker.
