Button Up

I've been seeing buttons popping up all over cards & layouts these days, so I wanted to try and spruce up an early Mother's Day card I was making.



Here's the outcome:



I used the Plantin SchoolBook Cricut Cart to cut the grass/flowers at the bottom of the card (5" wide x 3" tall) and used small Zots to adhere the buttons over the flowers. The card title was also cut from Plantin using the Design Studio to weld the letters together. Background paper was from an old "stack" I had lying around.


All in all, I'm REALLY happy with the way this one turned out!
