Fabric Flower So Kind Of You Card - HOC March Challenge #2

The March challenge at House of Cards is to "add a button" (or more than one) and during the following two weeks we'd like to see CAS or Classic & Elegant style cards.  I took a break from my HOC DT duties for a while but I am glad to be back now!

I made a Classic & Elegant style card using a favourite colour combo of Pool Party and Soft Suede.  I layered the Hardwood panel onto a Soft Suede mat and adhered it to the front of a 5 3/4" square Pool Party card base.  I die cut two fabric flowers, popped the smaller one up over the larger flower and added a punched circle and a button to the centre.  I die cut two leaves, shaped them a wee bit before adhering them and I popped the fabric flower up over the top.  I stamped and die cut the sentiment, popped the Very Vanilla banner up, wrapped the ribbon around the card and added two buttons.  To complete the card front I added two aqua nailheads to the sentiment banner.

I then had a happy time stamping and punching a selection of buttons using the SU! 'Button,Button' set to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope flap.  I stacked the buttons up to make them a bit more dimensional.

So that's what I came up with, now it's over to you!  It would be great if you joined us at House of Cards and make a CAS or Classic & Elegant card featuring one or more buttons, I look forward to seeing your cards!

Hi Ruth! I though about using that Sampin'Up button set too but I had fun with my TH sewing set instead. I love LOVE the color combo you used on this card. Gorgeous! Have a great day.
