Vintage Button Card

Hi All!!
I have another vintage button card to share with you today
using more of the scrumptious Crafty Secrets Button Cards digitals.

I printed a background paper from the Crafty Secrets Sew Decorative CD
then distressed the edges with my DIA Zutter.
Wow, I love how this paper matches perfectly to the image,
like it was made just for it..!

I rummaged around in my drawer of "whatnots" and pulled out a pretty
pink flower and a couple of little crochet doilies.

The buttons were clipped from an old piece of clothing.
A little tip/hint for you is to go to garage sales at look at used clothing
in a whole new way...BUTTONS....
who cares about the clothes, right?....just look for unusual buttons!
Look for old jewelry that can be taken apart, too...
they make great accents for your paper crafting!

I added a bit of ribbon/bow and pearls down the front of her chemise.

You are a card crafting wonder, Diane! So much to love here, and it shows just why we're so crazy about this craft. Those buttons are a great find, and the tiny button down the front of her garment are sweet! So much fun represented on this card!

Really pretty card Diane! Of course I adore pink and I bet that lovely lady has a teeny waistline!

For a good few years I worked on Saturday afternoons in a local charity shop and was forever buying costume jewellery for the 'bits' :)

OMG I am so far behind in my commenting! This is beautiful and so feminine! I just love it! You are so good with those little finishing details ... like the crochet flower that ties in so well with the ladies lingerie and the pearls down the front of her top. Beautiful attention to detail! YOU GO GIRL!!!
