Green Buttons!

Happy Saturday Everyone.

First today I'd like to say Hello and give a very warm welcome to Jo and Jean who have just joined me here.  Jean if you'd like to leave a comment I'll visit you as I can't find you at the moment.

Jo has lots of lovely work on her blog so you may like to visit her.

My card today is one I'd like to enter in the Allsorts Challenge blog where the theme this time is ..... buttons!

I die cut the dress onto a strip of card, stamped the sentiment then put on the three banners using a matching coloured paper.

I chose a selection of green buttons and stuck them onto the base card in the area where the dress would be then attached the strip of card using foam tape and finally added the purple bow.

  It's a bit drizzly and overcast here but I'm  off up the garden to do some crafting now

.I hope you have a lovely weekend.

I like how you placed the dress ontop instead of trying to get the exact shape with the buttons. Looks good.
Thanks for coming along to class last night, have a lovely weekend x

Love the buttons in the 'shadow box' dress design. This is most clever, very pretty and made a wonderful look to the lovely design, and also liked the soft colors. TFS & Happy wkend.
