Blingy Buttons

Good morning everyone!

Did you all have a nice weekend? We certainly did, we spent a couple of days in Zeeland, one of the Dutch coast provinces. We had beautiful sunny weather, but there was quite a lot of wind so it was still a bit nippy on occasion. It was wonderful though to get away for a few days :)

But now it's Monday again and there's plenty of fun things today was well, among which is a new challenge over @ Ooh La La, themed "Buttons & Bling". I managed to finish this card by the skin of my teeth, I was working on it yesterday evening when we came back! A case of bad planning on my part I'm afraid, but I managed to finish before my eyes fell shut somehow :) Such a beautiful flowers image, the CD Fleur D'Imagination is packed with them! I'm pretty happy with this card, I love the papers I found in my stash, very cheerfu making the card usuable for many occasions, always good to have in your stash :)

* Victorian Velvet & Forest Moss Distress Inks

* Button & twine from stash (I applied some crackle glaze on the button, but you can't see it very well)
