Button It :O))

...The theme of the new Gingersnap Creations challenge is Buttons...now, I don't know about you but I have hundreds of the little beggars and never remember to use them...so this was a great excuse for a rummage in my button tin :O))




I used some Crafty Individuals papers to stamp my Stitchels Dotty Dot flower onto, using all three of the sizes to make three big flowers. I used Jazz Blue and Turquoise Glimmer Mists to colour the background for stamping a Penny Black sentiment onto and then added a bit more colour to the actual card base. I used some scrummy cardstock from Paper Temptress (who are sponsoring the Gingersnaps this month) and matted the background onto this.




To make the flowers and their centre buttons blend, I spritzed Glimmer Mists over and also onto three more buttons, just so they matched a bit more. I finished by using a McGill punch to make some little ferny fronds for behind the flowers.

Thanks for looking...and for a fab challenge! Have a good day...
