Button It!!! at MAWTT

Hello again my lovely crafty (and non-crafty) friends.

As promised (in this post earlier this morning) I'm back with another DT share and this time it's for the new challenge over at 

This week I'm playing host and I've picked the theme 


Please don't think I'm being rude - I would just like to see some buttons on your projects :o)

I decided to get a bit inky with my card:

Card Ingredients:
Image: Hero Arts 'Big Flowers Pattern'
Stamped with Black Archival ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder
Then inked over using Variety of Purple & Lilac Distress Inks
Leave image inked with Crushed Olive Distress Ink
When dry I added some Stardust Stickles
Sentiment: Marion Emberson 'It's all in the Words'
Shell buttons and heart shaped button from stash

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my DT buddies - this is my last week on Team A as I will be swapping over to Team B next month :o)

Challenges I would like to enter:


Thanks for calling in to see me (again).
Let me know you've been so I can come and see you too.

Enjoy your day.
