Starring Two Buttons!

My word, what a lot of rain we've been having of late. It's hard to believe that we have a water shortage here in Kent! Well at least the water butt is full for when the warmer weather comes as we have a hose pipe ban!

Onto today's challenge at Scrapbook Sisters where the theme this week is a recipe, "One Circle,Two Buttons"!


For my DT card I used a selection of papers, a Nestie die to cut an off set circle from a larger circle cut using the Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook, some Xcut Nesting Stars on Pinflair gel to sit around the frame, and a generous amount of TH distress inks to make my papers more rugged and manly lol!

Some inky stitching and 2 buttons tied together with some string complete the card.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
PTT65, Anything goes and Kraft,
AWNB6, Anything goes,
MIM86, Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,

This is great Julie! I like the way the sentiment strips slips through the circle and the stacked buttons make a lovely embellishment. Vicky x

Kind of a retro-look going on there, and that's a style I really like. The text is in colors that are bright and happy, and the stars are really decorative too. Spotted this on MIM

Your card caught my eye at MIM. I'm #138 & 194! Love this masculine look and you've managed to make it look retro into the bargain!

What a wonderful Birthday Card, its just perfect for a male with the more neutral tonings, whilst fabulously fun with the bright stripes and greeting. Thanks so much for joining us at Party Time Tuesdays this week for our Anything Goes + Kraft Challenge.
