Thanks for tuning in for another challenge with the Just A Scrappin' Design Team. This week is actually DT #1 turn for the post. I always like to play along, who can't use a good challenge?

Challenge #15: Make a card, layout or 3D project using any animal. Also use embossing and 3 buttons. Any color goes.

My take on the challenge:

Stampin' Up Stamps: Not sure of the name of the stamp set, from 2005, retired.
Stampin' Up Watercolor Crayons: Creamy Caramel, Basic Black, Close To Cocoa

Directions for Card Assembly

1. Cut Cardstock to 4.25 X 11
2. Score card at 2.75 and 8.25
3. Cut both side layers to 2.625 X 4.125
4. Inside layer cut at 4.125 X 5.25
5. Adhere image to embossed layer
6. Attach adhesive to left hand side (only) of image layer and adhere to left flap
7. Place three buttons on lower right hand corner, alternating colors

I really had a lot of fun creating this card. I thought I would step out of the box a little and change the shape up.

Since this week is animals, I thought I would share a beautiful picture of one of the puppies in my life. When I went to take this picture, she heard the camera go on and posed. She is so super adorable!!

Without further adieu, meet Lily:
