CD Sunday - Buttons

This week the Challenge over on the CD Sunday challenge blog is Buttons. Like the ladies I have chosen to use the Grandmas Buttons CD, having bought this when it was on Create and Craft, it has sat on my shelf and not been used. I don't know why because it has some really beautiful images, backing papers, and sentiments on. There were so many great colours in the backing papers to choose from, but for this card I wanted to keep it quite muted, so that the topper and decoupaged imaged stood out well. I mounted the backing paper and sentiment onto gold mirri card, before mounting it onto an A5 card base. The decoupage was mounted onto a Marianne Die that I coloured with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. I added the buttons to the corners, threading them first with embroidery threads in different colours. After adding the sentiment, I found some flowers that I felt went well with the colours and just added some buttons to the centres.

I have to say a big thank you to Judith who recently sent me a wonderful box of crafting goodies, inside was a little jar with some brightly coloured buttons, these are what I have used on this card.

Thank you for looking, your kind comments are always appreciated.

This is gorgeous - I was sort of tempted with this CD but in the end decided to pass (maybe I should have bought it).
