Button Birthday

Happy Tuesday! I had some time this past weekend to play with some sets which hadn't yet seen ink. If you remember, several friends and I spent quite a bit of time and money at the Papertrey Ink booth during the CHA Supershow. I still hadn't given my new sets the attention they deserve, so I got to work. I used Everyday Button Bits to make this birthday card. It's going to a friend whose birthday is this week -- and she happens to be the one who spent the most time at the PTI booth! ;)

You probably know by now that I *love* this October Afternoon Cherry Hill paper. I saw these two patterns lying together on my stamping counter, so I put them together on this card. Actually, after I was finished, I decided this combination would be perfect for a Christmas card!

I embellished with more PTI products: the ribbon, buttons, twine, and Vintage Touch tea dye ink (around the image panel). I also machine stitched around the paper panels.

Tomorrow I'll have some MFT fun to share with you, so I hope you'll stop back! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today!

Have a great day!
Christina
