All Buttoned Up

Paper Craft magazine hosts monthly challenges to create to a specific theme. The March call to action was using buttons, which are so trendy right now in projects.

I love a challenge, so I came home from work and made this card Tuesday night.

Who Loves You?

Easy question... You know I love you for even visiting my blog. I could gush for days about what a great opportunity it is to get to share my love for paper crafting, but I think you come for the projects and not the mush. Right?

LOL! ;-)

The card was actually one that I dreamt of a few nights ago... in color. I woke up at 2 am and got up to jot some notes. Luckily, I didn't wake my poor husband. But, I think he's used to it now.

I stamped the owl on Solar White cardstock, colored with Copic markers, and trimmed. I also stamped the branch and trimmed it out. The ring and circles were made using my trusty Coluzzle... love that thing. Using a couple of the sentiment lines from the U R A Hoot set, I created a large visual and colored in the letters. I think it turned out fun! The last touch was the addition of the colored buttons. They are adhered with mini and pop up glue dots.

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs~
