More fabric - more buttons!

The Pink Elephant has a sketch challenge to use buttons. My branch was a bit bare looking, so I thought that the flowers with the buttons as centers were perfect. They helped draw in more of the color scheme and gave the card some pop I, maybe you won’t notice that my owl is stamped a bit crooked?!?

This was another card I featured at my hostess club get together this month – and the main thing was stamping on fabric, muslin, to be exact! My following post has more details about stamping/coloring on fabric for a card...

Card Materials:
Artsy Owls, The Angel Company
Paper: Misc, Bazzill
Yellow and Green DCWV
Accessories: flowers from Ava embellishment, assorted buttons, Martha Stewart punch

This following card is from one of my club members...Donna. (She’s the kind of woman you love to be around, positive, silly and always uplifting. If she were to make a “mistake” she looks at it as an opportunity and worst case, says, “just lower the lights, everything looks better in the dark” or something to that effect. She has me laughing every time we get together) Most of the gals used the owl stamp or cow from my last post, but as usual, Donna did her own thing and I loved it. She used my beloved branch as a tree...and then stuck some flowers at the base. These are retired flowers (also from The Angel Company) but they were meant to pop out of a vase and I love the curved effect they have at the bottom of Donna’s “tree”.

My inlaws arrived yesterday so I was busy cleaning and making beds but I did sneak in time to finish a card for SCS's Wednesday sketch! I hope you’ll pop back in on Sunday because I have a really neat surprise!
