Card Challenge 32

Another Wednesday and another Card challenge at Scrapbook Sisters. The challenge this week is "buttons" that's an easy one for everyone,everyone likes to use buttons don't they? I thought I'd fish out some long forgotten Quickutz dies and cut out some flowers and stems and then use some lovely buttons for the flower centres. I used my Martha Stewart border punch on some offcuts of paper and added some fake stitching to the centre panel.
I then threaded two buttons together and used the thread to tie across the pinched ribbon to form a bow then wrapped the chord around the front panel of the card.

I decorated the inside of my card to match the card front.

Now,I do hope that you join us in this weeks challenge,I can certainly think of one of my blogging buddies who's sure to enter the challenge, like me,she has a bit of a "thing" about buttons,I believe she even has more than I have. (Yes Nancy,I'm talking about you ;) )

Thanks for stopping by,

catch you later,

Oh my goodness!!! I just had a flash of all the lovely daffies that I hope will pop their little heads out of the cold earth SOON!!!
Such a wonderful card filled with details - inside and out (you are SUCH an over-achiever!!!) You put me to shame with your delightful inside/outside cards... I suppose you make and watercolor your envelopes? :)

This has to be one of my FAVORITE cards ever. And you managed to pull it off with no stamping except for the sentiment. This is so cherry - you just made my night!
