Hey Button it!

mail.google.com

Good Saturday Morning to you all! We have had some beautiful sunny days lets hope for another one and hope it lasts, love it when the sun is shining just makes everything so much better! I'm working today as we have a children’s party at the shop, they are pottery painting, which is soooo much fun!


So then for my card today for this weeks Totally Gorjuss Challenge,
Our theme is Anything Goes with Buttons.And our Sponsor is Crafters Companion

I thought it would be nice to do something different with No image this week with some sewing and some embossing and distressing,… But Hmmmmm adding a buttons or 2…. I have used a plain yellow underneath and then cut out the star with a craft knife and ruler from the white wash card which is core yellow and then emboss with divine swirls…. and sanded it too!

The buttons are glued under with glossy accents, my sentiment is printed from my PC and simply says “ My Little Star!” a little Ribbon which is new into the shop this month, Think I am getting addicted to it! I bought some in Green too! and have nearly used it all… (note to self buy some more)…
