Buttons

One of the challenges I issued Thursday night at the Paper Pretties release was to use buttons on your card. I LOVE buttons, but I rarely use them on cards. I don't know why. Here is that chick again from One of Those Days. This time I paper pieced the egg to match the patterned paper. I shaded a bit on the patterned paper of the egg to give it some depth. I used the Punches Plus Brass template to emboss the oval for the sentiment, then punched it out with the large oval punch and stamped the sentiment. The buttons are from Doodlebug Designs and available in the Pretties Boutique. Thanks for stopping by today! Have a beautiful Saturday! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- One of Those Days (Paper Pretties); Paper- patterned paper (Nana's Nursery Stack, DCWV), white (Georgia-Pacific), Gable Green (SU); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Accessories- Scallop circle and plain circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), large oval punch, Punches Plus Brass template (SU), buttons (Doodlebug Designs), ribbon (Offray), Copic markers.

This is so adorable! And I just love that image & sentiment, it's just too funny. I think I need to add it to my "want to order eventually" list (which seems to be never-ending, btw!).
