Cute as a button LLBC #15

Good morning everyone! Happy Monday. It's the LAST day of my week long vacation. :( It's been a very nice, and much needed, relaxing time off. A couple of days I didn't even make it out of my PJs!

Yesterday was one of those PJ days and I spent most of it watching football and crafting. I made this card for this week's Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #15 which calls for the use of buttons. Easy enough for me since I use them pretty much on every card! I kept it subtle with the two little buttons along side the yellow rose. I wanted to use this rose so bad to mimic Evie's rose that I almost forgot to use buttons! And did you notice that I used my new favorite FTL #107 from Clean and Simple? Love it! Tweaked it a bit with the placement of the sentiment.

This was also the LAST of this CTMH Magic Moments paper pack! Yippee! Another one bites the dust! Which is why I decided to share this second card I made with the last of the scraps. Kinda sad though since this paper was recently discontinued. It was one of my favs for a long time. I played of my new PTI Button Bits set by punching circles from the last of the scrap and then adhearing a button on top. I really like how this turned out.

Stamps: TPS 20's Evie digi, CTMH Fringed Phrases, PTI Button Bits
Paper: CTMH Magic Moments L2pp, A Muse kraft
Other: Copics, CTMH inks, buttons, and hemp, CB folder, EK punches

These are both wonderful Jenn, I really like how you placed the two buttons on either side of the rose (definitely filing away that idea!)and your button trees on the second card are way too cute!
