Baby Buttons


Here we are then, almost the weekend - yay! :)

Now, Im not a big fan of using buttons on my projects - I thinks they belong on yer cardi! ;) lol, however a few challenges this week want to see buttons, and they I do look cute on baby cards.

This is a bit pastel-y for me.  I was trying to keep it soft and a little simpler than normal as I'm always inspired when I visit Katinas blog with her simple, but elegant and sweet cards.  I like to faff a lot, and find it hard to walk away thinking its finished if it was too quick. :)  So this is quick, simple and clean for me.

I used a fabulous freebie digi image by Meljen - I love her images, so intend to get a few more quite soon.  I used K&Co papers, MS pap and the charm was from a recent win on Lexi's blog and its from Ewe2can craft.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Totally Gorjuss - Button it
Delightful Challenges - Pastel and ribbon
2 Sisters Challenge - Furry and fuzzy friends
The Crafty Pad - Use a digi
Stamp with Fun - Spring
Creative Card Crew - No rubber
City Crafter Challenge - Babies, buttons and bows
Cooking it up with Katie - Animals and buttons
Creative Cottage - Spring has sprung
Meljens Designs - Punches
Colour Create - Pastels
Moving Along with the Times - Precious Metals

Thanks so much for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges.  Please check back tomorrow to see my 1st DT card for One Stop Craft Challenges.  Have a great day,

Totally adorable card! You made me laugh with your comment about buttons!!! I am slowly getting used to the idea of using them on my cards, but can't work out why they always look better on someone elses card than they do on mine...!?!?! Lol!
