Sweet Pea

It's Monday...back to work after a great Spring Break! The only good thing about going back is that it is closer to the end of the school year! Counting down to June!

I went to a baby shower for a cousin in my hubby's family and needed a card. I used some inspiration from Papertrey Ink's gallery for this one.I used Papertrey Ink's Baby Button Bits. I went to PTI's gallery to get some ideas on how to use buttons with this sweet pea image. I think it was Lisa Johnson's card that gave me the idea to cut out the middle of the pea for the buttons to nestle in. I stamped the image in certainly celery on vintage cream then used a knife to cut out the middle part. I mounted it onto a piece of celery cardstock and added the buttons. The paper is Making Memories (don't know the name of it) and the ribbon is PTI's spring rain. Cute little card! I didn't know what to put in that upper corner...I just added more buttons. Is that overkill? I kind of like it!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping in today!
