Good Morning Everyone!

For today's post, I bring you a challenge from Heart 2 Heart, a Close to My Heart Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this week is to use a button or buttons on your project!  Don't you just love to use buttons?  They are such a fun embellishment to add to any project.  I decided to make a card using our fun and colorful Chantilly paper pack.

The sun frame comes our April Stamp of the Month - My Sunshine - it's such a fun and versatile stamp set.  I decided to use several coordinating ink colors on the image - it's a technique called "variegated stamping".  I just love the way it looks.  I adhered the buttons using Liquid Glass.  The sentiment comes from our Fabulous You stamp set.
