Buttons and Posies

Good morning and happy 2012!

I hope you all had an enjoyable New Years complete with whatever sort of revelry you prefer!
I spent a good portion of the weekend working on cards for the 5inkyfingers Etsy store and am happy to report I have a new All Occasion Assortment II available. Skip on over there and take a peek! I promise you won't be disappointed!

Today's card is a CASE from Jeanette R Lynton's book Originals. Straight off the front cover in fact!

My card base is a half sheet of Regal Rose folded and layered with three panels of cardstock and DSP. The top panel is a piece of Neenah Solar White that was embossed with the Sizzix Divine Swirls folder. The lower two panels are smaller pieces of Pretty in Pink DSP and Certainly Celery cs. I added a punched strip of Neenah Solar White along the middle where the three pieces meet.
The flower is a combination of stamped flowers and a punched scallop circle of Pirouette Pink with a plaid brad in the center. The stem is made of two pieces of rick-rack and a bit of linen thread and finally, the buttons are threaded together with linen thread and adhered with small glue dots.

Thanks for stopping by today!
