Button, Button, who has the button?

I will tell you - Top Tip Tuesday has the button this week! At least that is what the tutorial is all about. My teammate Samantha has done a fabulous tutorial on altering buttons and using them on your projects.
I don't often use buttons on my cards - I prefer using ribbon and flowers, however for this week, I took up Samantha's challenge and made a card using buttons. I used the sketch from Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #195 for my card layout. I started with a base of Daffodil Delight and then layered with a beautiful DSP from Stampin' Up! I continued to layer with the Daffodil until I got to my main panel and then I matted this with Cherry Cobbler. I added a Cherry Cobbler seam binding bow - which I just LOVE!! This is the first opportunity I have had to use this wonderful ribbon. It is easy to work with and makes such a pretty bow. I played with the sentiment - not knowing exactly what I was going to use, and decided to use a partial sentiment from one of the new Hostess sets from Stampin' Up! called Afterthoughts. I stamped it on the Daffodil Delight with Cherry Cobbler and then cut it with my spellbinders dies. I had Cherry Cobbler buttons from my Christmas package and just recently got these Daffodil Delight buttons. They were the perfect touch for this simple card. I hope you will come over and join in with us this week using buttons on your project. This simple embellishment can be plain, or you can use alcohol inks to color to coordinate with your project, but don't stop there, check out Samantha's tutorial and then post your project for a chance to win something from our wonderful sponsors this week.
Thanks for stopping by - I will have more to share with you later in the day - afterall, it is time to submit for the monthly Elizabeth Bell challenge - just in the knick of time too!!
