Papertrey Ink Blog Hop--Button Challenge

It's that time of month again!!!! Time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. I have participated for the past couple of months and had such a wonderful time meeting fellow crafters and viewing their art, I just had to join in the fun once again with March's challenge.   When I logged onto Papertrey's site to check out what this months challege would hold, I read the first line--"Calling all button lovers!"  OH THATS ME.  I love buttons--the shapes, the colors, the different sizes.  I am excited to share my project but I am even more excited to see what others have created.  With Easter on the way, I decided to create a card using some of my favorite new products from Papertrey Ink. 
I love the color combination of this patterned paper from Papertrey Ink called Egg Hunt. It mixes so well with their clear stamp set also called Egg Hunt.  It was fun to use the sweet little egg die to cut out a perfect egg shape all ready to be decorated.  The button border gives the finishing touch to my card.  Thanks for taking a peek at my button project.  Don't forget to hop on over to Papertrey Ink to see what wonderful projects await you. 

PS I recently did a blog post showing how I store my buttons.  If you would like to read all about it just click HERE.

Hi Mimi! I am excited about all there is to learn in this card! The threaded buttons are a must do! Your work is so beautiful, and so inspiring. I have button holder envy over the cutest one I have ever seen. I never see things like this! PS I hope you have a fun weekend with Joyce at the fabric store. Say HI to Joyce for me. You both are the best! Elizabeth

Mimi, love your card and how you used the buttons and especially connecting them with string! Another really adorable creation!! You have such a lovely knack for combining pastel colors together. hope that all is well there with you. I have been out of the loop for a while, just dropped into a void for a long time and am happy to be getting back on my feet now and getting around to visit with everyone. hugs from here, Debby
