EBKS20 - buttons
At Everything But the Kitchen Sink, we are to use buttons, preferably those that have been found around the house. I got these big ones in a mix from DeNami Design , and pulled them out, thinking I would never use anything so huge, and put them in my mother-in-law's button jar, which contains old household buttons. Amazingly, they almost exactly match the colors in this October Afternoon Farm Fresh Farmhouse paper, and that's where this whole card evolved from. I added small brown buttons to their centers, to simulate the design paper. Just like when I make a quilt, I chose this paper and then found other items that pull out the colors and design in that paper. The stamp is from Stampendous, called Sunflower Stem, and because it has a sentiment incorporated along the stem, I didn't think this card needed anything else.
