♥ Cute as a button ♥

I am loving this new set by Papertrey Ink called "Button Boutique". Can you tell I have a sewing thing going on lately?? hehe Here is a fun and shabby card I made using the set as well as a vintage sewing thread label, some Maya Road chipboard, seam binding ribbon, crocheted trim, a paper doily, pearls and thread.
ETA: The "buttons" on the card are stamped.

I was inspired to make this using the following wonderful challenges.

This challenge from City Crafter, Spring Fling Challenge.
This color challenge by C.R.A.F.T Challenge. Loving all those gorgeous pastel colors!
And this beautiful challenge from the Kraft Journal, named none other than, "Cute as a button". It is to use Kraft cardstock and of course, anything with "buttons".

And finally, Simon says Stamp and Show...some Ephemera.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and don't forget to enter my giveaway! You could win a SEWING MACHINE!! Just go this post HERE. Good luck!

Hugs and much love...

Very nice! You did a great job!

I love sewing and sewing on LOs. I am so excited that by the end of the day I will have a new arrangement and will have my sewing machine set up right in my craft area! I am sure it will get used much more often this way. The way it was, by the time I got it out and set it up, I was just out of the mood!
