Button Button...Who's Got the Button - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, thanks for stopping by today!  I can't believe it's been over 4 years since I've been running the weekly Friday Bloggers Challenges, I appreciate the support of those who have been playing along since the beginning and to those of you who have just recently started playing!  I enjoy visiting your blogs to see your take on the challenges each week.

This week's challenge is all about Buttons, how you use them, or incorporate them into your project is totally up to you.

The majority of my images are from the Artistic Outpost My Favorite Book plate.  The cute little girl is stamped on a piece of White card stock, then paper pieced with some Graphic 45 ABC Primer paper.  I also paper pieced the little pennant from the Whimsical Melange plate.  I created a button with some scraps of the G45 papers and the Sizzix Button Embosslit, layering on a Black Circle and adding a bit of Black Hemp.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost My Favorite Book, Whimsical Melange
Ink - Black Archival, Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Marker
Card Stock - Black, Red, White
Other - Big Shot, Button Embosslit, Hemp. Glue Dots, SAMJ, Graphic 45 pattern Paper, Big Shot, Postage Scissors, Dimensionals
