This is a first....

Today I have used buttons on a card for the first time ever.....



While blog hopping I often see buttons on other peoples cards and love what I see, but I never seem to think about putting them on my own! Until today....
I am back using my favourite stamp set 'Wild about you'. I just love this set and find myself using it so often. Todays card is using the colours Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. The buttons and the twine are some I found while sorting out my crafting stuff. They are not Stampin' Up! but match the pinks just right. I also found some Glossy Accents, which I hadn't used before. I decided to try and make a homemade brad for the middle of the sentiment. I punched out a small circle and stamped the small flower onto it from the stamp set. Glossy Accents was then dabbed over the circle to make a dome over the image and left to dry. The result is a circle that looks like the designer brads you can buy. I have taken about 15 photo's of this card to try and show you this brad in more detail, but just can't get it to show up. Sorry. But give it a go yourselves, I am sure you will pleased with the results.

I made another card today, but that is for the challenge on Thursday over at In Love With Stamping which I am hosting this week. So I am afraid you will have to wait until Thursday for that one.........
