Button up

Good morning! Not long til weekend! I can't wait for it! And then I have the whole next week off so I can relax. Yay! :D I'm planning on making another mini album and do some blog hopping. I definitely won't do anything stressfull, I want to relax and enjoy my free time.

Today I want to show you a card that I made for the current challenge at Crafty ribbons blog. The theme is "button up" so we want to see some buttons on your cards/projects. I don't often use buttons on my creations, so this was quite a challenge for me. At the end I made this card ...

I keep thinking there's something missing, but I don't know what. I tried adding some more pearls, gems etc., but nothing worked, so at the end I just left it like this. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears. For this card I used Provo Craft design papers. The butterflies were cut from Artsy collage's Nature collage kit. It's hard to see in the picture, but I dovered the butterflies with glitters. I also used glitter glue on the flower and on the blue paper. The flower is a TH die. It was cut from a white cardstock and I used some TH distress inks on it. The buttons and ribbons are from Crafty ribbons - I used knit buttons which you can find here, gingham ribbon which you can find here and grosgrain ribbon that you can find here.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Crafty boots: Out of your comfort zone (buttons are out of my comfort zone)
Deep ocean: Letter B (blue paper, butterflies)
Papertake weekly: Buttons and bling
Tuesday alchemy: My hearts all a flutter
The crafting cafe: Anything goes
Picture and scrap: Use flowers
Oozak: Anything goes with your favourite colours (my favourite colour is blue and I love brown too)

I hope you'll come play with us. :)
Hugs! xx
