Cute as a Button

I am excited to join the Papertrey Ink blog hop for the first time. The challenge is to use buttons on a project. I love to use buttons on everything so it was hard to decide what to do. All supplies are from Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise noted. Punches: Fiskars, Certainly Celery cardstock from Stampin Up. I used Kraft cardstock for the base, stamped a little Botanical Border in white and then layered patterned paper from the Green Boutique pad. I stamped "Baby" from Mixed Messages II, with Hawaiian Shores ink. Then I punched a scalloped circle then inked the edges in Spring Rain. The buttons are from Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist and New Leaf collections from PTI. I just love the bright, cheerful combination of colors in the "Green Boutique" paper pad. I'm pretty sure I will be using this color palette often! Thanks for looking!
