B is for Buttons

ABC Challenge ... B I love these challenges can't always join in but try!
Sooooo many inspiring card I see and so many people crafter's that want to share their knowledge! I am amazed time and time again how kind crafter's are! so thank you to all you
lovely crafter's out there!
ABC are on there 3rd trip on the alphabet! and they have choosen buttons! I had a bit of a phobia of buttons for a long time but really love them and have done for a while so this challenge is great! (yes Cathy patterened paper! te hehehe!)
My good friend Helen shared a tip with us this weekend when we had our craft retreat that you can use nail varnish and glamour dust or ultra fine glitter to enhance your buttons so here are my 2 cards using Buttons
I have also used a lot of other bits on my card so if you wanna know what something is shout in a comment :0)
Helen its your fault I have glamour dusted my nails now! t ehehehee :0)
