Who loves Buttons?

Hope you are having a fantastic day!
The current temperature in my part of the USA is 47.  Yeah!  I'm loving it!

As I was looking through some items that I recently received from a Flickr friend,
I couldn't stop looking at ALL the fabulous buttons (in one of my favorite colors) she sent. 
Then I looked through ALL the patterned paper I've bought/collected,
 (I really need to put it to good use.)
and found this lovely "Simple Stories-Documented" 6 x 6 paper
that I thought would work beautifully with the lovely buttons. 
I strung the buttons on twine, and added a glue dot behind each button.
After playing around with the design, this card came together rather quickly.
WOW...I love those buttons!  Thanks, Rosemary!

Oh Martha! How do you do it every time! You come up with such simple designs but they look worthy of sitting in a Bloomingdale shop window! Just beautiful! I really love your string of buttons!

I would never have attempted to string a row of beautiful buttons together -- glue dots are a brilliant idea!
Wonderful card - such soothing colours.
Cheers, Karen
