Buttons, buttons and more buttons

 
Just sharing a quick and simple card that I made today. I absolutely love clear accents and so have a whole heap of clear buttons that I have finally managed to find in my stash. The chipboard birds were covered with patterned paper and I filed the edges to give the birds a smooth finish. I drew the legs with a pen, I own so many sharpies but for some reason none of them work so used an ordinary pen that did the job just perfectly. I stuck the clear buttons in a curve so that they didn't look uniform, added the "with love" rub-on and to give the card a homely look added the twine and flower button.

As I have said before cardmaking is therapy for me, after a stressful day at work I was happy to end the day by making a card.

The challenges I have included-
Buttons -Everything but the kitchen sink
Moxie Fab World, Card style-Fun and Cute
