Button, button, who's got the button? C4C46

It's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge! Today Jessie is challenging us to use buttons. Um, yeah, I can do buttons ;-)


This card sorta started out with a tongue-in-cheek take on the challenge. You know, you want buttons? I'll give you buttons, LOL! But the more I worked on it the more I really LOVE how it turned out! I got this strip of crocheted cotton lace--with all those buttons attached--at Hobby Lobby several months back, just knowing one day I'd find a use for it. It was super expensive by the yard, so I only got 1 foot of it--enough for two cards...or one if I messed the first one up, LOL. Anyway, the card is really simple--this paper from Basic Grey's Kioshi 6 x 6 pad matched the buttons perfectly so I went with it. With all those buttons, nothing much else was needed, so I tied a length of vintage seam binding around and stamped this Verve sentiment at the top with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. I knew I'd need a good impression since it was going to be stamped on patterned paper and Versafine leaves a very sharp impression.

Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy girls...er, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C46.

Thanks so much for dropping in today! Can't wait to see what you create with buttons!
