TSG93 It's all about Chemistry

OMGoodness... I'm exhausted but oh so totally inspired. I spent 4 days with a few of  "trendsetters" both past and present and had such a blast. What could be better than stamping with great friends in your pj's for 4 days. Love it! 

This week’s challenge is being issued by our Trendsetter of the Week, Sandra and she wants us to create a card using the following: 3 patterned papers, 2 buttons, and 1 sparkly element. Can I just say this was definitely easier said than done... I made the card... check.... made sure it fit the challenge - NOPE!! I had forgotten one of the buttons and the sparkly element. Apparently I'm not the best at a supply challenge. How could I forget such important parts of the recipe?  So apart came part of the card so I could add the second button. Where is the sparkly element you ask?  I've realized looking at the photo that it's hard to see but I have two pink colored rhinestone gem thingies on either side of the sentiment. I know what you're thinking... yup I have two gemstones but hey - they're the same as each other so shouldn't they count as 1 sparkly element? Yup - let's just go with it!!! For this card, I've used two TSG Sets, Chemistry and Chem. 101. It was the first time using this set on a card and I love it!! I have a feeling that this may become a go to set especially with Valentine's Day coming up.   The layout comes from February's Sketch for You to Try at Jen del Muro's blog.

Wanna play along? Here are the deets:
