Button Bag.

This is not the card I was going to make
but I found this image whilst hunting
through my stored digi images on my pc
and thought how ideal it was
so here goes.
 Image is from Paper Creator
and is by Sassy Cheryl.
It comes already coloured.

There is still almost a week left
to play in my current 
Butterfly Challenge

Hope this card gives you some  inspiration.

Base card is made from green card stock
layered up with  cream shimmer  card and then 
the image trimmed to size. 
The butterflies are bronze filigree elements
in my stash that are popped up on 3d pads
to give the illusion of flight.
Word was punched out using SU punch
edged with gold gel pen and again raised on 3d pads.
Job done!

See how easy peasy it is. 
Butterflies/Buttons/ Bronze.

Brilliant Mrs A! Love the button plants - and I'd been debating about using identical butterflies - back to the drawing board I fear.

Lovely to see you in the Playground!
