Less is More 25...Buttons and Ribbons


I made this card for Less is More's challenge 25, this week's challenge is to use a button or ribbon...I used both!
I had a ribbon hole maker( very loud hammer hitting metal tool) and made two slits, threaded my $1.97 ribbon from Walmart through the slits and put some dark brown floss through wooden leaf button(Joann's).  Added sentiment(verse from Verve) to panel and popped up and popped up again on white card.

AND...I decided to put up my first attempt, but this one doesn't qualify...I thought there wasn't enough white space...but thought the Papertrey Berry Sorbet colored card, buttons and ribbon were just too "sweet"...so here it is:
I know...nothing original under the sun, but fun to make, anyway.   I am trying hard to start thinking out of the box when I stamp, but unlike so many other incredible stampers...I have to work REALLY hard at it...so I'm working on it...but not this card...it's still ok to just make a row of button flowers and add ribbon and sentiment...and you know...I like it!!  The ink, card, buttons, and ribbon are Papertrey Ink Berry Sorbet, the other ink and paper Early Espresso.  Flowers stamped on bazzill white, the sentiment Hero Arts and pink twine threaded through buttons.

Thanks for looking, hope you have a great day!!
