Dream Valley 16 Buttons

Our challenge at Dream Valley this time is to use buttons. It doesn’t have to be just a card, you can scrap, alter, distress or anything else you can think of, and you could even try home made buttons.

We are sponsored by image with $10 canadian to spend in their store.

For my card I went with a LOV stamp which I have coloured with the lovely new letraset flexmarkers, apart from her hair and the dog as there are just not enough colours yet! I trimmed her out and placed her over a Marianne diecut which in turn is on a gorgeous Kanban ornate mat. A friend bought me a set of these Ornate Mats and I couldn’t believe how many there were in the set. I reckon you will be seeing a lot of them for the foreseeable future as otherwise I will never get through them all! The buttons are from an old cardigan I pulled apart and the flowers are Wild Orchid crafts. The leaves are a sizzix die. Corners courtesy of a MS punch.

I’m entering this into the following challenges:-

Bearly Mine - #19 Button It Up
