Raggedy Ann - Monthly Challenge - July

Finally, my last card for the Monthly Challenge group for now. Waiting to see what we get for August. The Monthly Challenge is a group on Splitcoast Stampers. Each month one of the members sends a kit to the rest of the group including images, some dp, and embellishments. Then each member makes at least one card from the kit and sometimes more than that. Sometimes the Hostess has guidelines that we are supposed to follow. It's always fun and interesting to see what each member makes from the same kit. July's kit was sent to us by Kelly (Miamikel on SCS). I loved the story that she wrote us about why she picked this image. So sweet. She's always loved Raggedy Ann. She sent us a lot of red, white, and blue papers and embellishments. Oh, another favorite of Kelly's is buttons!  We were supposed to use buttons on our card and decorate the inside of the card. Well, I got one out of two anyway, LOL! Maybe I'll decorate it before I mail it off to someone.

It took me some time to figure out a good layout for this, but finally came up with this one. The buttons were in the kit and you can hardly see the red/white twine that I used for the blue button.

Materials used all from the kit:
  • Image - Crafting Desert Divas - Sew Raggedy
  • Sentiment - same as image
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Real Red for the base; Recollections - Blue for mat
  • Designer Paper - Core'dinations-blue w/white dots; DVWV - red gingham
  • Accessories - Sew-ology - buttons; The Twinery - red/white twine
  • Copic Markers - B21, B23; C1; E0000, E01, N5, N7, N9; R24, R27


  1. Awww, this is so sweet- and I love the DP, the colors and love the buttons too : )

  2. Gorgeous Maggie - if you want twine to shoe on a button, tie it on the front

  3. Oh, how darling! Two of my favorites -- gingham and polka dots. I love using buttons, too, and have tons of them. I like your layout!

  4. Such a cute card! I love the layout you used for it.

  5. So cute! Sounds like a fun group

  6. Awww I think this is my favorite!! Reminds me of my childhood :-) I think it's a great card layout too.

  7. Oh my goodness... this Raggedy Ann type of card is just so cute. Very nice, Maggie!

  8. Maggie this is out of this world cute!! What a charming dollie card, colored to perfection! I love how you added the fun buttons and the contrast of the blue/red papers - outstanding! My heart is happy to see this made into a card :) Hugs!
