No Button Bits


I think it's PTI that has a set out called Everyday Button Bits. Ever since I saw this stamp set I've wanted it - but haven't bought it. I keep thinking - "Do I REALLY need it?" Anyway, I probably do need it (LOL) however, I haven't bought it. BUT, last week I was in Hobby Lobby and found this little image called Flower Garden from Stampabilities. Yes, I can add buttons to those little flowers!!!
I stamped the image twice after coloring it with SU markers. Buttons were added to three of the little flowers. The paper I used was Pretty in Pink and white. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU).

This actually qualifies for several different challenges: Clean and Simple, CAS and SCS, and Cowgirl Sunday. Whew! I've NEVER done one card for three challenges!!

Thanks for stopping by.............
