You're Bloomin' Fabulous!

Hey bloggers...have any old buttons laying around?  GOOD!  Because this weeks Our Craft Lounge challenge is to use Vintage Buttons on a project.  So BRING IT ON BABY!

I used a wooden button my card in the center of the paper flower. Yep...I say wooden buttons qualify for vintage.


I used 2 stamp sets from Our Craft Lounge on my card - Say It With Flowers and Fancy Fringe.  I also used my Janome Sew Mini machine to add stitching on the card base as well as the mini sentiment tag.  Love that little machine!  The paper flower is sponged with some Mustard Seed Distress Ink. If you are ever looking for a fun yet easy way to add interest and texture to a card - try some Washi Tape.  That stuff is awesome!

Hop on over to the OCL Blog to see all the challenge details HERE.
