Happy Birthday Buttons

For this weekend's Memorial Weekend Blog Hop post please click HERE.

Last Tuesday's Trigger over at Moxie Fab World was to use Betsy Veldman's card below as inspiration for our own card.

Here's what her card inspired me to make...I love buttons and thought this was a perfect design to show them off! It was about 10 years ago when I was busy quilting that I discovered how much I liked buttons...not just using them but collecting them! Who knew my collection would come in so handy years later? I love using buttons on my cards...they are great by themselves, threaded with cotton or even tied with a ribbon! They go perfectly with ribbons, fabric or lace and can easily be matched to different papers. I love adding texture to my cards and buttons are a great way to do it! I store my buttons mostly according to colour so it was easy to find lots of different purple buttons for this monochromatic card.

Supplies:- Stamp - Happy Birthday Cursive by Savvy Stamps
SU coloured cardstock
Bazzil textured cardstock
Assorted scrap paper
CM corner punch
Scallop square punch
SU ink
