Buttons, Buttons (MMSC3 & soabuttons)...


To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

I thought that with so many cards to make, it might be prudent to combine a few challenges. For the Button, Button, Who's Got the Button? Challenge for SOA, I decided to use this week's Midnight Madness Challenge sketch (how lucky is it that the sketch asks for buttons?) My version is a bright, cheery thank you card in patriotic colors. For the flower "buttons," I made those from cardstock and 1/4" and 1/16" hole punches. Also, for a little background pizazz, I used a rub-on tool to recreate the hand-drawn "stems" on Pacific Point cardstock.
