So Many Buttons

I'm not real sure how I acquired all the buttons I have, but have way too many!  I decided to use a bunch on this card to see what it was going to look like.  I started with the image from Stampendous and colored it with SU markers and then placed several buttons over the flowers.  I stamped in the grass using an old SU set I had.  The sketch I followed is from My Time Made Easy and I'll enter it into their challenge.  After finishing the card, I felt it needed something at the bottom - so added more buttons! 


This turned into a very Spring-y looking card - and I'm so ready for Spring!

I'll also enter this in that challenge at The Paper Players (Spring Has Spring) and Penny Black and More (Springtime)

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