Button Trio Birthday

Hello again!

I've made a card based on the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts and inspired by Friday Mashup, where the challenge is to to use lace and mash it up with butterflies.

I decided to make a vintage/distress style card.  I wanted to use buttons for the trio of images in the sketch, so they ended up on top of the horizontal banner rather than underneath.  I layered some lace under and on top of the banner, then added the buttons.

I started with a base card of the new In Color Watermelon Wonder.  Isn't that a luscious color?  Next I took a single panel of the same card stock and layered a piece of retired First Edition dsp on top after being stamped with various images from Butterfly Basics, then distressing and sponging with the new Tip Top Taupe (also a new In Color).

Well, I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!  I hope to be back in a day or two with another post.  As always, your visit and comments are so very appreciated!  I've included links above to both PPA and FM; don't miss that opportunity to play along or at least visit and check out all the gorgeous inspiration!

What a lovely vintage birthday card you've created, Stef! The newsprint in the background works beautifully. The tattered bit of lace and butterfly are the perfect "mashup". Thanks so much for joining us for the Friday Mashup this week.
