Buttons Rock!

Me loves me buttons so loved this weeks DMC dare
All the buttons are stitched on the background paper. I glued on a bit of lace round the edge because it just needed something and a frame didn't look right so I settled for the lace. The message is just printed out.
I was thinking this card would be great to send to another crafter as they'll be able to chop off the buttons to use again! And I defo know they would even if they said they wouldn't lol, well I would!
Background paper is Making Memories, buttons are a mix up of new and vintage ones from my stash. Thread is embroidery thread along with lace from my local haberdashers.

Thanks for another fabby dare!

If you're bored this week pop along to the Crafty Templates blog and check out the competition. All you need to do is make a shaped card with a birthday theme. I've got a Basic Grey Periphery kit to give away as a prize and there's some lush buttons in there too along with some of the papers, diecuts and some yummy ribbons and lacy bits too, it's defo TDF stuff!
