How Do You Feel About Buttons?

Me?  I just have a hard time with naked buttons.  Buttonholes just beg to have something through them or be covered up.  I hope that doesn't make me a prude!  I do tend to be more on the modest side :)

This card was made for another Stamp 2 Spend challenge offered up by Kelly.  She asked us to go into our favorites and remake one of the oldest in our stash!  I found this card by Becky Oehlers that I had tucked away for just this kind of inspiration. 

It's a pretty clean and simple design.  I went with pinks and red to compliment the love theme.  I embossed the stitched heart image and then cut it out.  Then I used a buttonhole punch and threaded some thin satin ribbon through it.  I tried to tie a bow, but I just couldn't make it work.  So I resorted to a knot.  I added a little faux stitching on my die cut shape to mimic the heart image.

Thanks for stopping by!

Adorable and sweet card! I love the pretty pink/red combo and your little heart is darling. I agree with you about buttons, the holes should have something in them. I am always telling the gals in my card classes...remember, no nekkid buttons! LOL
