Buttoned up !

Yay it's Wednesday (and my post isn't late !) which means that it's time for another challenge over at MMCS challenge blog. This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Tiddly inks.

This week our challenge to you is to show us how you use buttons on your creations.

I have been wanting to try this technique, which I have seen all over blogland, for ages. 

So I started by die cutting my cardstock with my heart die. I used the heart die cut as the base to adhere my buttons to and then positioned the cut panel over the top (does that even make sense ?!).
 I then added the heart frame around the heart "window" and added the sentiment & flowers with brad.
All of this was then added to the base card using dimensional adhesive.

Here's another pic for you

I hope you'll join in and play along with us over at MMCS challenge. The DT has made some amazing projects to inspire you so hop on over to the blog and take a look.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Shopping our stash weekly challenge - 3, 2, 1 (3 words - I love you, 2 flowers, 1 brad & using button stash)
Top tip Tuesday - Recycle it (buttons)
The pink elephant - Wedding/anniversary
Going grey with scrap-creations - Pick 3 from the list (I chose red, die cuts & buttons)

Thanks for visiting me today and thanks for all your lovely comments x

I think your button heart turned out absolutely fantastic! I really like the bits of brown to balance the red as well.
