Cute as a Button!!!

Buttons buttons buttons....do you have a stash somehwere?  i bet you do..and I have the perfect challenge to use them on because over at Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge the theme this week is BUTTONS!!!

Now i had big plans for using buttons but it kind of went by the wayside...lol
You see I have been dying...dying i tell you to create a card using the headshot technique with the Lil Lolita digi stamps.  So I got to printing and colouring and decided to use the ultra bright and gorgeous DeLovely papers by Cosmo cricket (*warning sunglasses may be required*) then created my card.  I then wentthrough my rather dismal button stash onlyto find I really didnt have any buttons to match...eek!!

So this is the best i came up with....maybe next time i should choose the buttons before I pick the paper...lol

So come on dig out your button stash and ink up your pretty girl and get creating!!!

Your card is amazing Leonie. I'm more vintage so I just love seeing someone do the brights ('cause I can't!!). It looks fantastic and I think your buttons match nicely. You can always colour buttons with your copics.

Oh my Lone, your card is bright and cheerful but I don't need sunglasses! What a fun card and I like your "headshot" of her. Your buttons are a perfect match! Hugs, Cami
