Tomorrow is a new day

I have another Blooming Button Bits card for you today. Very simple, one layer--if you don't count the popped up flower :) I stamped the leaf image and the sentiment on Rustic Cream with Ripe Avocado ink. Then I stamped the big flower on Vintage Cream with Raspberry Fizz ink and cut it out. It didn't turn out as dark as I'd wanted--need to practice more with that new formulation of ink, I'm thinking. I added a huge button from my Lemon Tart Vintage buttons (finally a use for those big honkin' buttons!) and a tiny flower-shaped one from Raspberry Fizz Vintage buttons collection, both tied on with Vintage Twine. Then I tied some Raspberry Fizz grosgrain ribbon around in a knot and called it done!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget tomorrow is Stamp Simply day! Sharon has done it again--a super fun challenge!
