Some button fun.

So it's a coincidence that my card today has buttons on it after Nichole's recent annoucement that PTI will be selling buttons (which by the way is my DREAM!). I made this card last week and was inspired to use buttons with the branch from Out on a Limb. After placing the buttons on the branch I envisioned a way of making them pop and as such grabbed polka dot basics and used the circle to add appeal to my "tree".

And just in case you didn't know, I absolutely love the look of kraft, white and brown together.



You'll note I used the white ink pad to brush around the edge of the scalloped rectangle and cut out sentiment.



Supplies
Stamp Set(s): Polka Dot Basics by PTI ,Out on a Limb by PTI
Cardstock: Kraft by PTI

Ink: Snow Cap by Ranger, Dark Chocolate by PTI
Accents: Buttons by MME

Tools: Scalloped Rectangle by Spellbinders


Have a wonderful Sunday.
