Button Up!

Hello everyone ! Mindy from Grammies Craft Room with a Button Up project  to share with you. I had a hard time deciding what direction to go with this challenge. I had  a Cricut cut in mind when I first saw this theme but of coarse when I went to actually make it I couldn't find it!! Has that happened to you??

I ended up using the 'Button' function key on the Paisley cartridge on page 33.

I cut it in 3 sizes  2", 2.25" and 2.5"  The middle is cut at 2" but I moved it to cut out in the  same paper as the second layer.  I inked all the edges and attached with glue only in the center of each layer.

The  button is from my button box :) with a piece of hemp tied through it.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up with Early Espresso ink. The ribbon is Sage Shadow (ret) from Stampin Up.
I stamped Crumb Cake card stock - SU - with a SU stamp using Crumb Cake ink - SU
The patterned paper is from DCWV - Linen Closet stack .

Someday maybe my photography skills will improve and the pictures will do the image justice! I can tell you this card looks so much better in person! I am very happy with the way it turned out !
