SSCB#27 Buttons

Happy New Year!  I hope you stayed up late - at least until midnight - ate lots of good food, and had a wonderful time.  Maybe you are nursing your poor head today?  What a good excuse to start off the new year in your pajamas!  If you have some crafty time I hope you will stop by the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.   We've made a few changes there - the challenges are now monthly giving you more time to play!  The design team will still provide inspiration twice a month (every other Wednesday), but you get the whole month to link up your designs.   You can get all the details and see designs from the other DT members here.

 My card today features lots of pretty patterned paper, the floral butterfly die cut from Serendipity as well as lots of (you guessed it!) buttons!  Is it ok to start thinking Spring?  It's pretty cold here in the Midwest!
 Thanks for stopping by and a Happy 2014 to you!!

Love your card! It is a breath of spring! And how fun to feature buttons! And a month to play in the challenges will hopefully allow me to play more often!

Love the wonderful cheery colors! The gorgeous butterfly and the fun mix of buttons would make anyone smile. It's great to see a bit of spring when outside is so cold & snowy. Do you have snow too?

Yes, yes, yes...you're reading my mind. For some reason I'm on a huge button kick today. I can't get enough. Paper, real, ceramic...they are all so beautiful and versatile. I am so happy you posted this one to aid in my addiction. :)
HUGS and Happy New Year!!!
