Button, Button

I just love the newer sewing theme trend in card making & scrap-booking.  This week on the Moxie Fab, the Trigger Tuesday was this cute napkin holder.


As you can see, I took a pretty literal interpretation with this challenge. Here's the link to Moxie Fab blog's Trigger Tuesday challenge.   It's a great blog- lots of fun, trendy stuff! I got my button card from The Graphics Fairy; what a great place for free vintage clip art.

 About my card~ I printed the button card from The Graphics Fairy on Neenah white cardstock & distressed it using SU! Crumb Cake and Ranger's pumice stone distress ink & then put it on a base of the same Neenah cardstock. Using white thread a straight stitched frame was made on SU! Crumb Cake cardstock. Most of the buttons were from my stash except the flower button in the bottom right is from SU!. The paper flowers are from Oriental Trading; the centers are Paper Studio's pearl brads plus one filigree brad from SU. The base is Gina K 120# pure luxury card stock.

Hope you have a great Sunday and week! Thanks for stopping by!
