EBTKS Challenge - Buttons

Time flies. I can't believe this is our 20th challenge! It's my turn to host, and I had found this really cool button my mom had saved off some old shirt. I thought it was the perfect challenge. Now, can you use your store bought buttons? Absolutely. Would we love for you to use buttons you found around the house ... oh yea. After all, this is a challenge! But either way just come play along with us and break out those buttons!


The above graphic is actually my jar of "found" buttons. I try to keep buttons from clothes or those extra buttons you get with clothes in this little jar. And here's my card.
Don't you love that button? It works so well with My Beach House! I also used a row of store bought buttons to really finish it off.

Supplies
Stamps: My Beach House (Practicing Creativity)
Ink: Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Kraft (Stampin' Up), Ivory (Gina K)
Ribbon: Netting, Ivory Twill (May Arts), Brown Twine (Shabby Green Door)
Buttons: Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink)


This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamps! Simon Says Stamp also carries Practicing Creativity Stamps! The winner of this challenge will win a $15 credit to their store! Plus this winner has the opportunity to be our next guest designer!
