Button, Button for Bloggers Challenge

Happy 4th Birthday, Bloggers Challenge!  This week, the star is the lowly button (some of those buttons are anything but lowly, however!)....

I picked up this blue and brown polka-dotted paper in a scrapbook store today, made a cut-down rosette out of the edge and finished it off with a brown button.  Underneath it is a layer embossed in a Sizzix folder and embellished with a polka-dotted ribbon.

Fantastic card. I really like that Sizzix folder, I need to look for that one. At first glance I thought the blue/brown paper was a frame around the embossed paper--sort of like an optical illusion. Darlene
