Magnolia Down Under Challenge #23 - Buttons

Don't you just love the simplicity of buttons - yet they can be such a star feature too! This week's challenge at Magnolia Down Under is to use buttons on your creation - what fun!! I really don't think I use buttons enough! These are from my Button Box in the sewing section of my "disaster zone" aka my crafting space!

I've used one of my new Tilda's from the A Little Yummy for your Tummy collection - Dinner Tilda - she's sooo sweet! I've paired her with Kiwi Kiss, Kraft and Basic Gray CS and some DP from SU's Urban Oasis. And yes, I've used my new Fiskars punch again - LOL. Some mini green rhinestones add a little sparkle to her necklace and bracelet - she's definately dressed for dinner!

So grab some spare buttons and your Magnolia stamps and come and join us at MDUC this week, or just pop over and see what amazing creations the DT have come up with. Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Scrapbook Boutique.

Debbie P, this is so nice! Love the colors and papers you chose. You're right, buttons sure do dress up a card. And speaking of dressing up, does Tilda look fantastic or what. Love her jewelry. I like how you have her positioned on the circle too.

This is just gorgeous. I was thinking the other day I really should try and use my magnolia stamps again. I have been so slack. You have inspired me again to try and use them again.

Just beyond words on this card! LOVE the colors, buttons, texture, layout, die cuts, and did I forget anything... LOL! Just as sweet as YOU!! Take care... :)

I'm loving that punch. Your Magnolias are always adorable. You can't go wrong with buttons, either... one of my favorite embellies.

I felt two drops of rain (or maybe three) yesterday. I practically started doing a jig. You must think I'm mad! Mad for autumn and rain, that is. LOL

I sure wish we lived closer...

Love and hugs,
Lisa
