Serendipity Stamps Challenge #27 Buttons

Do you love buttons?  I know I do.  Most people are sewing them on when they fall off.  Me I'm cutting them off before I throw out any clothing item that has not been "gently" worn.    I have so many cute ones from baby clothing that was just so stained by formula that I didn't feel comfortable giving them away.  Something about the candy colors and the jewel like shine that I simply cannot resist.  If you feel the same way as I do I hope you are playing along with the Serendipity Stamps Challenge this month because YES! ... It's all about BUTTONS!

To keep it interesting (or possibly just to keep us on our toes) the design team made all their button cards this time with a "chalkboard" look!  I thought this wedding cake looked like a drawing that might be fit for a chalkboard and a swag of pretty buttons is icing on the cake!
Want to see more projects from the design team?  Just click on their names here.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you make and hope you will join us!  Don't forget that the challenges are a month long now so you have more time to play.  Oh and the sale this week is free shipping continental US only on orders over $10.

Fabulous card, and I love what you did with the buttons. Now, why did I never think to take the buttons off those baby clothes before getting rid of them? Great idea.
