Shopping Our Stash has an Easy Challenge this Week!!!

Such an Easy Peasy challenge at Shopping Our Stash this week ~~ challenge 302 is to use buttons!!!



As you see Fussy cutting last week was not enough for me I had to fussy cut the cardinal from Stampendous, although there is a die set for it all the birds and the holly are very easy to trim. I have had this since last year and it's never seen ink and along with the three bird stamps, a holly and berries stamps there is a Tree Stencil, sad though I never even noticed it until I was typing this post  and I looked at the package without the set of stamps in it. "duh"

I made this for a friend's Birthday, she loves Cardinals




Close up of the flowers and the super sparkly buttons that I have had for eons the Happy Birthday is from Impression Obsession 




Finished the inside with a sentiment from the Impression Obsession and it doesn't see ink often enough, I seem to go with the ones that are on my desk at the time I'm making a birthday card.

I would like to enter this in:

I never think using buttons is an easy challenge. I struggle with where to place mine. But you certainly did it! Your card looks great!

Thanks for joining us for our Wings challenge at Cut it Up!

Love this Cardinal image, and the others in the set are just as beautiful. You did an amazing job coloring and fussy cutting this bird.
Love the contrast of the soft colors of the fabric flowers with their shiny button centers with the deep and rich color of the Cardinal.
Your friend will love this card.
Hugs,
Maria.
