Make it Monday card

Today's challenge on PTI was to use fun foam on a card. Shockingly (since my kids are in high school & college), I did have a piece of fun foam around - bright blue. I knew right away it would look great with a green so paired it with Simply Chartreuse. Foam cuts like butter with the PTI dies & made amazing flowers. I found that that fun foam also makes good buttons using the new button die. Hmmmm... might have to track down a few more colors of foam because the foam buttons don't add much thickness to the card, so wouldn't have to add extra postage. These challenges are so much fun!
