Gallery Idol Round 3 - Buttons

Really, really thrilled (and amazed) to have reached round 3 and the final 10 of Gallery Idol, it is a huge honour! Thank you so much to everyone who has voted for me.

The theme of this round was buttons, I do seem to have collected a lot, both branded and vintage and absolutely love using them on cards. So after so careful deliberation, I made this;



I used; Basic Grey, Rusty Pickle and (lots of) vintage buttons, a Grungeboard skull, Bo Bunny ribbon, Basic Grey brads and pearls, a cardboard box, Bo Bunny and Basic Grey papers, Bazzill cardstock, inking and stitching.

If you like my card, again, I would really appreciate a vote - You can vote HERE

and you can view all of the fantastic entries here.

Thank you for looking :)
