Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend so far! We took in the Minnesota State Fair this weekend and had a blast! The weather was perfect, the food delicious and the entertainment absolutely fabulous! Those of you from Texas and the surrounding area will know how much a treat it was for us to see country music singer, Jeff Allen. He made his first appearance at the state fair this year.
As for today's card, the Daisy Vase is a cute digital image from Bugaboo Stamps. It is hard to tell in this photo but I used my new Atyou Spica Pens to highlight the flowers. I won the Spica Pens from my good friend Shelly, My Creative Rumblings, during her one year anniversary blog hop. Since I made this card I've had more time to play with the pens and have to say they are awesome to work with!
I wanted to embellish this card with just the clear buttons but couldn't figure out how to attach them without the adhesive showing through so I ended up backing the buttons with cardstock. To hold the cardstock in place I punched the button holes then threaded the buttons with some DMC White.
Hope you have a fabulous day!
