Button Button Who's Got the Button.....

The challenge this fortnight at Dream Valley Challenges is buttons.  Yep, just incorporate buttons into your paper creation and link it up.  I decided to use my new cricut cart called Sophie to make my card.

 I layered some plastic purple flowers in varying shades over top the flowers on the cut.  The tiniest little purple flowers are buttons as is the glittery butterfly.  The butterfly had a shank on the back that I had to clip off. 

Purple cardstock - Archivers
Green Dot cardstock - BoBunny
buttons and flowers - my stash, had forever so could say who made them
Stamped Sentiment - MSE, Handwritten
Punch - EK Success (deco flower?)

And here is a picture of the inside using the punch.

  Be sure to head over to Dream Valley Challenges and see all the other creations that the DT put together for you.  I can't wait to see what you all create!
