Lazy Afternoon

I think buttons are my nemesis.
I see lots of you using them, to fabulous effect,
but it doesn't seem to matter what I do with them,
they never look quite right!
I will persevere though - I won't let the buttons beat me!!

I had to have this Lili of the Valley stamp when I saw it,
it's going to be perfect for those boys/men cards that I struggle with.
I coloured it with Copics -
but kind of wish I hadn't done those red stripes on his top.
Something a bit softer might have looked better.

I'd like to enter it for this week's Charisma Cardz Challenge,
where the theme is
'One for the Boys'

Stamp -Lili of the Valley - 'Lazy Afternoon' coloured with Copics.
  • Design Paper - Papermania Hampstead 'A Warm Welcome'
  • Red Velvet Brad - Papermania Hampstead 'Sweeties'
  • Edge of stamp inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Antique Linen'
  • String and buttons from my stash.

Oh this is adorable Caroline, gorgeous card. The buttons look fine, I think they look better when they are threaded like you've done.
