Buttons, Buttons



Well I am back from my trip to Canada and got sick while I was up there.  Glad you are out in blog world and can't catch it from me.  I'm sure it is just a bad cold, but sure makes my head miserable!  Before I left I made this card.  I love the verse around the design.  I have tons of buttons so thought what a great way to use some of them up.  Did I go overboard?????  

The stamp set used is from JustRite Stamps called "Stitched With Love".  It was stamped, colored with Copic markers then mounted on creamy caramel and chocolate chip card stock.  Circle Nesties were used and the scallops on the middle layer were pierced.  Each layer is mounted on dimensionals.

The design paper is from the Basic Grey "Sugared" paper pack.  I sewed it to a piece of creamy caramel card stock then I added the design.  I am not sure where I got the brown trim, but attached it to the bottom of the card with ScorTape.  Then I got started adding buttons with small glue dots and filling up the card with buttons on each flower in the design paper and also to the stamped design.  A few larger buttons were added across the trim.  I thought with this verse it was appropriate to add lots of buttons and to add stitching on the card. 

Have a Happy 4th of July.
