Inspire Me Challenge #3

Happy Tuesday to you all!I really wanted to participate in the latest Inspire Me Color Challenge hosted by Dawn over at her blog Stamp Away With Me. The deadline was last Sunday but I really wanted to give this fun color combo a try. So even though the deadline has passed, here is my card...I don't have the exact colors she listed, so instead I used PTI colors: Enchanted Evening, Spring Rain, Scarlet Jewel and Vintage Cream.
Isn't this a fun way to put those huge buttons to use?! The button ornaments were stitched directly to the cardstock. I pierced a hole just above each button, strung the embroidery floss through, wrapped it back around to the front and tied the ends into a tiny bow.

Thanks for stopping by!
