My Besties Challenge and freebie wordart

It's team A's turn to host the My Besties challenge this week and our theme is 
You must use a My Besties image and follow the theme.
Top Prize $30 Besties digis
5 runners up each receive 5 digis

I thought it might be a good idea to sew all the papers onto the mats, even though it is 25 years since I last used a sewing machine. I started with the circle, but it was a bit of a disaster, some of it wasn't too bad, but some of it was so higgledy piggledy that it looked like my 18 month old grandson had done it! (I've hidden the higgledy piggledy part behind the image hehe!)

At that point I decided to just add buttons LOL!!!

Image - My Besties Slick Ozzie - Coloured in Photoshop
Papers - My Birthday Boy - Just So Scrappy
Wordart - made by me - scroll down and snag it

Wonderful shaped card. Love all the shapes and bright colors. Gotta love a crafter who can both spell and hide the higgledy piggledy parts!

Love how fun and bright this card is. I too like the notion of sewing on my card, but it's been far too long since I've sewn too.
Thanks for playing along at the Digi Darla Design blog.
