ODBD Sneak Peek!

This card is for today's SCS Ways to Use It Challenge(WT220)!!! We are to use buttons!!! Thanks for a great challenge, Julia!!! I am using a large button as a ribbon slide because the holes on the inside were large enough to get the ribbon through. I also used a small button in the top corner as an accent.
I am giving you a sneak peek of one of ODBD new June 1st stamp releases called Ask, Seek, Knock! I colored the door with some Ranger inks and an aquapainter. I enhanced the coloring once it was dried with some copic markers. I added a fiskars punch border detailing. I only show a portion of the punch, though. Love this look.

I kept the background dp and layers sort of in the monochromatic look eventhough the dp comes embossed with the flourishy leaves. I used some Prism by Prismatics cardstock in Birchtone Bark. This cardstock comes in every color under the sun and I am convinced will match any dp that is impossible to match. I finished my card with my button as ribbon slider and corner punch detailing.
