Button Up! Challenge #41

Hi there scrapping friends!  We've been celebrating Canada Day weekend here in my neck of the woods.  The weather has been lovely, the food scrumptious and time with family and friends- awesome!!

I've always had a thing for buttons - I used to sort Oma's tins full of them,  my mother collected them to add to her hand-knit sweaters and I remember having quite a collection of pretty ones when I was a little girl.  Even now I can boast to the fact that I have 8 quart-sized canning jars full of the colourful plastic discs ready to be added to a knitting project or my papercrafting.  

So - if you haven't guessed yet- this week's challenge is to use BUTTONS on your creation.

Here is my button-y card:

I too like buttons.  I have lots of them, don't we all, so my only problem was figuring out which color would work best on this layout.  These little red buttons with some twine threaded through them worked perfectly as the 'extra touch' embellishment.


I have a button stash that needs to be used up.
