Grow Old with Me

The buttons you see strewn across this card were added for another Gina K. February release party challenge (Bunch o’ Buttons). I don’t use buttons that often because they aren’t very USPS-friendly, but they sure look great on cards. These were adhered with little pieces of Scor-Tape, torn to size.

The Inspiration Mosaic background was stamped directly onto Wings of Hope digital paper, printed on Georgia Pacific card stock from Wal-Mart. I also stamped it on Pure Luxury white card stock for the two sections that I cut out. The swirls on the DP reminded me of the Baroque Motifs image, which I stamped with Orchid Opulence ink around the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Love the way you created the grid-like background, Vera, and the buttons look fantastic!

    Really cute. I am not a purple girl, but I like this. The big button balances it out perfectly.
