Button Heart card

Theme this week on Drunken Stampers is Buttons.

I've gone for a vintage feel on this one; one of my favourite styles and using lots of pink(ish) buttons, it seemed to lend itself nicely to a romantic card. I've kept it quite simple, as so many buttons have been used, too much would make the whole thing too busy.

By arranging the buttons tightly, the heart image is clear but still have a feel of complexity. Mounted on similar coloured background paper, the heart seems to pop and mounted this on black really seems to harmonise the whole creation.

I've used some vintage style grosgrain ribbon to finish the card off and a cute little sentiment.

Why not pop over to to join the fun.
