New challenge at
with Anna being our hostess and she has chosen the theme

For my card I remembered (surprise~surprise) that I had an already
embossed card stock with buttons on it.
I cut it down to fit on a red mat underneath.

I die cut a stitched oval from a pile of scrap paper I have on
my desk to try and use up.
Once my image was stamped and colored,
I stamped her pants on the same paper and fussy cut out.
A Stardust gelly roll pen was added to various parts of the image
and a few tiny, tiny buttons.

I just love this sweet little image from My Favorite Things....
I can remember when I first saw these little girls several years ago
I thought I would have to own them all....I think I have 4 or 5 so far, lol!

Head on over to The Sisterhood and see what my 
sistahs' have to inspire you with
and come and join us with your own buttons creation!!

Entering the following challenges:
