Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #18

When you read this post Monday morning we will hopefully be all moved into our new house!  We are in the last stages of packing and as with every move have decided that we have way too much stuff!  I am so thankful this is our last move for years and years to come.  Don't get me wrong we wouldn't change the adventures of the past seven years for all the tea in china but we are so very excited for this next stage in our lives.  Home ownership... all I can say about it a this point in the move is that it better be worth all the worry and trouble it has put us thru.

Now onto this weeks sketch from AHSC!  So adorable! So many possibilities. I think this sketch is going to be used many, many times in the future.  For my card I decided to use a super cute stamp set call "Buttons, Bits and Bobs" to stamp my sentiment and make most of my buttons.  I did add a few "real" buttons from my stash and tied all of the buttons with bakers twine.

Using the great colour combination of Outdoor Demin, Hollyhock, Blush, Ruby and Sunset from the now retired Claire Papers for my buttons, cute as a button and background paper. This card came together quickly despite the fussy cutting out of the smaller buttons and the threading of all the bakers twine. I did pop up my Outdoor Denim "cute as a button" with 3-d foam tape and lightly sponged the edges of the Clair paper to add a bit more dimension and framing for all those buttons.  So adorable!
