Bloom Brightly with Button Pizzazz Tutorial










The card colors were inspired by the ribbon. I picked it up at Michaels some time ago and have been itching to use it. I bet your wondering if I used the whole spool to make card, well NO but I did use lots of little pieces!! The card was created to share with my embossing friends. I started to create it and then discovered I had NO matching button to pull the card off. Being snowed in what's a gal to do? I made my own and you can too. I put together a quick step by step to share with all. I hope you enjoy and it is something new to you. Go easy on me this is my first TUTORIAL!

Nettie, that is awesome. I didn't know you could color buttons with Copics! Thanks for the tutorial and yes I was thinking you must have used the whole spool of ribbon!!
