If there is any crafty item that I can play all year around, it has to be BUTTONS. They can be incorporated into any themes, designs or seasons. Buttons can be the main theme for any design, they can also be the little embellishments. And lastly, they can give the card the WOW factor! I needed a break from making Christmas cards, so here is my all occasion card with buttons. I am entering this for Lily Pad Cards Challenge (details here ).
Card stock: White, kraft (Recollections), green (Bazzill), Grenadine Layering paper (Hero Arts)Stamps: Butterfly from Lauderdale Floral, leaf from Sweet Thread, sentiment from Big Hugs, all by Hero Arts

Aren't those buttons "delicious"!?
