Using buttons...

I'm here to post a layout and a card that I made for another Studio Calico's NSD challenges-- a challenge to use buttons.

For my layout, I used some American Craft patterned paper that I got in a Studio Calico kit, as well as some Studio Calico patterned paper (yellow), some SC cut files (love and the feather) and a couple of the printables that SC provided for the crop. I added some Papertrey ink buttons and twine. (I'm also entering this layout into the challenge to mix in a digital element (the printables)).


And for my card, I used another sheet of AC patterned paper that came in a SC kit. I stamped on the patterned paper using versamark and my PTI Lace Bouquet stamp set, which I heat embossed with white. I diecut one of the PTI Bountiful Banners dies, stamped on it with Sweet Blush ink and then stamped my sentiment using Happy from Happy Day and Mother's Day from Pretty Peonies. I also added my PTI buttons for the challenge.


Thanks for looking!
