using real objects...

..that's the challenge this week over at Less is More.
For my real objects I thought to pull out my buttons again. Haven't used them in ages, so thank you LiM!
At first I wanted to make a bear (polar bear would have been nice) but I didn't have the right colors and or sizes, so whilst rummaging in the button collection I came across these pretty butterflies and I thought I could use them on my card, and I did lol.

I stamped the grass border from Joy Crafts in Memento gray flannel as well as the sentiment from Clearly Besotted (brushed greetings 2).
AS I like thinking of you cards to be subdued and tranquil, with just a pop of color that is provided by my cute buttons, I attached
them with glue dots.

Coming up with the card took longer than making it ;-)

  4. It's lovely to get some buttons out again isn't it Maaike although they do make it a bit difficult for mailing cards. Love these super pretty butterfly ones which work a treat in your little scene. Thanks for playing along at Less is More with us.
