I'm Here To Listen



Mornin' mornin'!  I haven't played along with The Colour Throwdown in a while but I really like their colours this week so I thought I'd join in.  I used stamps from Unity's January 2012 KOM.  I stamped the flower on the card and layered it with a fussy cut and a button.  Whoo hoo!  I used a button!  Only about a million more to use now...

Such a serene and pretty card. Glad to hear that there is someone else who buys more buttons than they use. Ask me about my ribbons and patterned paper next! I really love the sentiment on this card.

Too pretty! Great button use too... I'm with you, I keep putting buttons on, then off, then on, then off.... only 2 million to go!

That's why I like to use a gazillion buttons on one card. Using stash! Woohoo! lol
Gorgeous card (love that argyle peeking out!) and the sentiment is so beautiful. I love it.

Another one here from button hoarders anonymous, well done on using one on your flower :0)
Love your cards with a dark base....I really must do that more too.
Cute flower, perfect way to use the colours.
