Hurray for buttons

Good morning everyone,

I have been cracking my head around this month’s Papertrey blog hop inspiration photo. It’s so colorful and linear at the same time – so my style but the thing I was cracking my head around was – what image to use?

Here is the inspiration photo:

So I do my usual thing when I’m stuck in a rut – I browse the internet for inspirations. First, I found a sketch on the Stampendous blog yesterday with all these linear circles … hmm, interesting …

and then I saw the Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World with all the sewing items on the inspiration photo (the banner was kinda handy)

and it struck me – buttons!!! What a great way to make a clean, bright and linear card for Papertrey Ink blog hop with buttons – my image issue is solved and so is my ever growing button stash. That’s how my mind works …

and here is my button card:

and I had to make this a congratulations card – heh heh … that’s how my mind works.

Everything is from my stash and the double-ended banner is from Papertrey Ink. What an unexpected match!! I love how this turned out – YEAH, my mojo is back!!
