It is time for Flourishes FTTC104 Challenge! This week Maki Jones is the host. Maki is challenging us to use buttons on our cards or project!  We would love to see what you create!  I am using the colors from SCS Color Combo Challenge CC309!  We are using Not Quite Canjun Daffodils this week. 

 I am using Flourishes A Guiding Light and Clouds background stamp sets. I stamped the the ship with Memento tuxedo black.  Here I go making another manly card again this week.  My dh birthday is February 12th and Valentine's is February 14th.  So, needs lots of cards!  I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collections.  I stamped the ship again on a piece of post it note.  I cut our a mask of the ships sails.  I covered the image and stamped my clouds background with some Ranger Stormy Sky ink.  I cut out and layered with some Spellbinders.  I used some Webster's Pages and a sheet of solid ink distressed dp.  For the solid golden page with rust edging, I embossed and stamped with SU En Francaise bg using Memento's Potters Clay.  I stitched the edges of the background pattern.  I stamped the sentiment with Potters Clay and over stamped with a shore image that is also included in the set using the stormy sky ink.  I finished with a basicgrey enamel brad layered over a blue button.  I love doing this touch as it makes the buttons a tad bit dressier and more vintage to me.  I also added two blue buttons on the top right of the card.  I  finished with some blue dyed distressed seam binding.  The goal was to have more white showing with just touches of the blue.  Love how it turned out.

Make sure you check out the other blog team designers to see how they used buttons!
