Lucy's button challenge


Here is a card I made today for Lucy's button challenge.  I really borrowed her style here, clean and simple, zig-zag stitching, and buttons.  These ones are teensy - about 1/4 inch diameter.  Love this jillybean soup paper called caraway seeds!  Thanks, Lucy, this was fun!

Supplies:  Hero Arts CG194 Stencil Flower, heidi grace Greetings, ivory parchement, pale aqua cardstocks, jillybean soup designer paper, tiny buttons from Michael's
