♥ Simon Says....Buttons!! ♥

Who doesn't like to use buttons on their cards or projects?!! What a super fun challenge we have for you all this week at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog!! Just upload any type creation using buttons!! Can't wait to see what you all create this week!!

This week the Simon Say DT got to play with Basic Grey! I chose to use some fun buttons called Picadilly Wooden Buttons! They are just beautiful! I love the wood look they have with the beautiful flower images on the front.

I also used some other BG buttons from their Wander Collection.

The beautiful stamped frame is from the Urban Prairie Bitsy Bug Stamp Set. I inked the stamp with several different colors of blues and greens and stamped it onto a piece of Prima's Printery paper. The background paper is also by Basic Grey from their Euphoria line. The cute little lady bug is also from the stamp set.

To finish off the card, I also used some Liquid Pearls in White Opal, some "chunky" glitter, Melissa Frances rub-on transfer, Prima trim, seam binding, Martha Stewart punched butterflies and some hemp twine.

As always, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!
