{Fun With Buttons}

Good afternoon! We have been battling colds this week but thankfully we are all on the mend. Being sick is for the birds! LOL Anyways, this is a card I have been working on for days now and today I finally finished! This set features a super cute Turtle with matching sentiment by Inkadinkado. I used my SU Markers and Bics to color the turtle, and the light blue circle was made using a circle stencil and SU pastels. The DP is from DCWV, and I used my Janome to sew around the outside square. I thought it would be fun to add the buttons flower, and the stem, and leaf I hand cut from a piece of green felt. I did the stitching by hand as well. Crafty eh? I am really loving the felt embellies that are popular right now! I hope that you all have a great week and again thank you so much for visiting my blog!
