Sara Henton was sweet enough to ask me if I would like to play along this month in the All Things Unity Challenges. I LOVE challenges and Unity stamps, so the answer was a no brainer. Heck, yes! LOL

Today’s challenge is called Button Up!  The sponsor for this month challenges is Buttons Galore and More. They send us each one of their button assortments. The buttons came in a clear plastic container. I filled them in an empty Marmalade jar. The lid had been colored first with Gesso, then with Juniper Adirondack  Paint Dabber. I cut out the label for the buttons, ran it through my Xyron and stuck it on the jar. A small strip of fabric tied around the top of the jar finish it off.

I love using buttons on my cards and quite frequently use three or four on a card. But since this is a button challenge, I thought I would add a LOT of buttons on one card.

A 3 1/2″ square of fabric was stitched to a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with Classic Scallop Square Nestabilities. A sentiment from Unity’s Store kit Naturally You was stamped in the center with Rich Cocoa Memento ink.  Quite a few buttons were stitched to the bottom of the layers with Lemondrop Twine as well as white embroidery Floss.

A piece of sea green Faux Suede May Arts ribbon was adhered under another button that was stitched to the upper right hand corner of the squares. The layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, folded in half.

For the inside of the card I cut another piece of cardstock with the same scallop square die that was used on the front. The background stamp from Moments in Bloom was stamped in the center with Tumbled Glass distress ink. A strip of the same fabric used in the front was stitched to the square.

Another sentiment from Naturally you was stamped in the center of the layer with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and more buttons were added.

I hope you have time to join us in this challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
