Loves Rubberstamps - Cute as a Button!

Hello Friends! 

I have a few posts for today, so please be sure to check out all three! 

I am back with Loves Rubberstamps challenge.  This weeks challenge is Cute as a Button!  All you need to do is use a button on your creation. Simple enough!  Our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter and they generously provided us with some images to use.  I have chosen to use Kisses as my image.  When I seen this image, I knew exactly who the card would go to, my in-laws.  Monday they celebrated 45 years of marriage.

I printed the digi image on cryogen paper and colored it with copics.  I used the Die-namics Round Banner Die to cut out the image and finished the image with Spun Sugar Distress Inks.  For the background, I used my favorite My Minds Eye Lost and Found paper.  Since I have been using a lot of the MME lately, I have ordered some new brands.  As soon as I get them, I will be sure to share with you.  Ok, back to the card... I used some miscellaneous charms, gems, trim, a flower, brad, and, of course, a button.

Copics used:
Wood:  E31, E35, E37
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E13
Hair:  Boy: E34, E50, E53, E57; Girl: E02, E08, E18, E19
Shirt:  Boy:  R81, R83, R85, R89, BV20, BV25; Girl:  V01, V05, V06
Pants:  C1, C3, C5, C9
Shoes:  C5, C9, BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29
Grass:  G94, G99, E87

On the inside, I used a PrintWorks sentiment on the MME paper I used on the outside.  I searched around my stash and did not have one Anniversary sentiment.  I guess it is time to go shopping again.  I finished it with a few more flowers and another button.

So get your buttons out and put them to use!  Then show us your creation at Loves Rubberstamps!
