Buttons Rule the day...

Do you guys wonder where I come up with these titles? I have no clue. I just look at the card and bam! There it is..lol. I made this little ditty because I always seem to need a Thank you card, but don't always have the time to really sit and create on. I can MAKE one, but we all know that's different from CREATING one...right? ;)


Anyway, on Saturday I happened upon a little craft store called The Sassy Scrapper in Murfreesboro, TN..just about 30 minutes from my home. We never venture far from home, but we needed to go to a specific store that was ONLY in the mall out there. Ugh. So, on the way back we made a couple of wrong turns and before I knew it, I saw this store. It was so lovely. Turns out this was the second store and the main store (also in Murfreesboro) was a few miles away. I bought a PCD stamp set and also these little buttons that "stack" on top of each other. I only bought two little packs (3 buttons to a pack), but I already wish I had bought more. I love how they just stack on top of each other.



Here is a closeup of the buttons:





 When I started this card, I wanted the buttons to be the main feature and I think they still show well, but the Top Note panel took over..lol...poor little buttons. hee hee

Anyway, so I tried to do extra little details like the glitter line, the cuttlebug'd orange, and the rickrack bottom on the green. I think it turned out really cute, though. I'll definitely use this color scheme again. It totally works for me!

Have a great Monday!

Stacking buttons?!? How cool is that? The earthy colours compliment the stamps so nicely, Keva. Well done!!

Beautiful, Keva! This is by far one of my favorite sets! Great button too!

I want these buttons! Especially that one on the bottom. Great find - you'll have to go back again and load up on more.

Totally cute! I love the button inspiration! The ric rack at the botton is adorable! I love it!

Great colors and those buttons are TOO CUTE!! Love the ric rac also, I should pull that out more as well.

This is a great card, Keva! I love that color combo, too, and the buttons are awesome!

Great card, and a teeny FYI in case you're interested. They're building another Sassy Scrapper (don't know if the original is relocating to it or ?). It's by The Avenues, Murf's newest shopping area. Nice area, btw.

Great card, Keva. It seems whenever I need a card for a specific situation, I am never in the mood to do it right then. I usually end up just pulling one out of my stash.

Those stacked buttons look GREAT Keva; this card is really beautiful!
