Buttons Galore, Letters & Numbers

I have managed to create a card using 2 challenges so I actually feel as if I have achieved something this week. Over at ASFOS this week they are asking you to use Buttons on your cards. I never tend to use buttons on my cards, not sure why as I have loads of the things, so this was a nice challenge for me to do, although you will probably laugh when you see the actual size of the buttons I have used lol!! Also at CCT this week they are asking you to use letters or numbers on your cards. This card I have used 2 sentiments on my card. I love the sketch that Clare came up with at D&D last week & just had to use it again to make this card.I used a sheet of my fave papers at the moment, the D&D picnic patch. I added some blue mottled card from my stash & layered a card mat onto this. I am loving these mats, they really add something to your card. I added heart brads to the centres of the flowers on the mat. The "New Baby" & "cutest boy" sentiments along with the circles that the buttons are on are all from a sheet of accent stickers by Papermania. The ribbon & flowers are from my stash. The buttons I ended up removing from some flower embellishments that I had floating about in a drawer. The teddy is a Magnolia image that I was sent & I coloured him in using my usual pens (details at end).I decided to only use the paper, card & mat through to the inside. I think it is just enough to give a centrepiece to the inside of the card. xx Clare x
