The Button Tree Card

Hello!

Today I'm sharing my submission to the top 10 round of Paper Crafts Magazine's Gallery Idol! I am still a little shocked that I made it through last week! Did you see all those amazing cards?? Hee! This week's theme was great- we had to use buttons as an embellishment on our cards! What better way to showcase them then my favorite stamp set of all time! Here is what I made:



Goodies:

Stamps: Season of Friendship set by Stampin' Up!
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip Classic inks by Stampin' Up!
Paper: patterned paper by Fancy Pants; cardstock by Bazzill Basics
Accessories: Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon, mini clip, Dimensionals, paper piercer by Stampin' Up!; Upper Crest edge punch by Fiskars; White Signo Gel pen; Buttons by Making Memories, Creative Cafe', and some of them were loose from my stash...

I had lots of fun playing along this week! I can't wait to see what everyone else makes! Pop on over to the Gallery Idol page to check them out and of course, vote for your fav!

Hope you have a great day!!
