Cherry on Top!

There is a very popular set that came out in the IBC this year called Button Buddies. It caught my attention right away, but I didn't order it for months because I "needed" other things more. But, I finally got it and LOVE it! I used it for today's card but thought it was so cute that I couldn't cover it up with the buttons!

 I did add one of the Giant Spice Cake Buttons. Love these! And, I am realizing that Soft Suede has become my go to color lately!
 Lots of distressing on today's card. I crumbled up the DSP and then used the Distressing Kit to make the wrinkles stand out. This kit is so fabulous. Who knew a blank stamp could do so much to a project! Have you tried it yet? You really should!
 And I also did the gingham technique using the Stripes Embossing Folder and red ink.

Stamps: Button Buddies
Ink and Paper: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White, First Edition DSP
Other: Big Shot, Striped Embossing Folder, 3" Circle Die, Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Spice Cake Buttons, Distressing Kit, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Circle Die, Basic Pearls, Vintage Trinket

I used these colors from CR84FN and the sketch from Inkspirations.

If you want or "need" any of these or other Stampin' Up products, please check out my online store.
Have a GREAT Monday!
