WPlus9 Monday Mood Board #7 - Buttons

I hope everyone is doing good!  I can't believe how cold it is here lately - I was starting to think Spring was here but it's been windy and cold for several days now.  You can see just a hint of snow in the air, not enough to collect on the ground.  There are some signs of spring though - some sprigs of green stems of daffodils peeking up out of the ground.  I think the chipmunks are active too because our dog, who is a year old now has been digging at the entrances of their tunnels leaving holes all over the yard!    My son is on Spring break and has the flu so I've been playing nurse!  I blame it on his weekend camp out at the Indiana Dunes.  I mean who camps in the winter?  I know .. I know... real men right?

I'm playing along today with the WPlus9 Monday Mood Board.  Here's the inspiration photo.  Lots of goodies in here you can pick up on - the sewing elements, doily, and all those pretty colors (green, blue, orange, yellow) and yummy patterns (polka dots, stripes, damask, floral).  Lots of great stamps sets that would work well here too.  I grabbed the frame from the Class Act set to make my button card, and started playing around with the buttons in the lacy layers but settled on real buttons for the bling factor - no contest - shiny plastic buttons, or flat stamped ones?  Don't need to ask me twice!  I love all the bright colors here - especially the turquoise (bet you couldn't just guess that looking at my card!  HAHA!)

Thanks for having a peek - if you'd like to play along you can get all the details here.

With so many great elements on this one Jeanne, not sure why that little tag of twine just jumped out at me as my favorite part, but it did! Love the color combo and the buttons and doily. That crochet button is really unique...never seen anything like it!
