Say It With...Buttons & Bows

Todays challenge at Annabelle Stamps is to make a card using buttons and bows. I must admit that I have a hard time incorporating these two embellishments on my cards. I so envy crafters who seem to use them with ease.

I used the little bloom from Annabelles All Squared stamp set.

I embossed the card front with the Square Lattice folder from Stampin Up. I punched some circles for little windows and clear embossed the flowers in some happy colours on the inside of the card and each flower got a button centre. I finished off with a sentiment and a double bow.

Stop by the Annabelle Stamps blog to see the projects made by the designers and don't forget to play along and create a card using buttons and bows!
