{Friend to Friend}

Hey Everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was great! We were able to attend a Wine Festival. This one was my first, but I can say it will not be my last. We live near many vineyards, so I will not be a stranger to them. I even saw a high school friend. I haven't seen her since 1996, so it was really fun to chit chat.

What I did not do was a lot of crafting. However, I did squeeze in some time to make this card inspired by Loonie Stampers Challenge. I really like these colors and I think I've used them before or some similar combination. I tried to incorporate a couple of buttons for Gallery Idol's theme for the week (although I am no longer a contestant, I thought it would still be fun to play along with each week's theme)! I did not focus on the use of buttons, but I thought adding them to the flower buds is one of the best ways to use buttons.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!

I have to say that PTI Swiss dots ribbon is one of my favorite products ever. It's so soft and cute and the colors are vibrant... and they MATCH.lol... anyway, great card!

Love your use of these colors! I agree that using buttons as flower centers is one of their best uses.
