Bundle of Joy with Buttons

This last release, PTI came out with a set where you use buttons as part of your stamped image. Very cute! But money is tight and I can't buy a new set every time I turn around. So I thought I'd try this instead! I thought it would be cute to have the elephant from Bitty Baby Blessings holding some balloons. My friend Banu (check out her blog here) sent me some buttons a few weeks ago so I am putting them to good use. I especially love the striped button at the top of the balloon bunch. I used a ruler and black marker to draw the strings. CS is Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, and Ocean Tides (for the ear). Used Borders and Corners Oval and the smallest oval Marvy scallop punch for the little tag at the bottom. Card front is embossed with CB Swiss Dots, and of course my favorite toy, Nesties, are used for the focal point. Elephant is stamped on Bitty Dots DP and cut out. Ribbon is PTI. I really am happy with how this card turned out--now I just need someone to have a baby so I can give it away. Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
