Buttons and Twine

Cas-ual Fridays wants you to use buttons and twine this week. They're a new, fun  challenge that is for the clean and simple.

It didn't take long to make my card. I stamped some leaves and stems and added buttons for the flowers.
I'm using three strands of twine and added a bit of dp at the bottom. Stamped a birthday sentiment and that's it!

I'm also playing in these challenges:
A Spoonful of Sugar-#152-Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes - #69-Happy Birthday


Recipe:
Stamps: Stampabilities-Berryvine Border, Stampin'Up!-Well Scripted
Paper: PTI white cardstock, unknown dp
Ink: Memento bamboo leaves, Stampin'Up! Night of Navy
Accessories: Big Bag Buttons from Michael's, twine from The Twinery

This is such a great C&S card! I love how the buttons pick up the color from the DP and the bakers twine is the perfect border to separate the panels! Great choice of buttons too!

Am I mistaken or was this not put on SCS???? I don't remember seeing it there, but then, you know I'm not always with hit. I love this and those buttons sweeten the deal. I see you're into Emily's baking twine now!! Hugs!
