W+9 Colour Cue Challenge #12

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying their day so far and maybe getting some crafty things accomplished:) I had a chance yesterday to do some blog surfing (something that I really love but never have enough time to do) and I discovered some awesome new blogs (well, new to me) through the fantastic ladies over at the Play Date Cafe. I found myself at the W+9 Designs blog and came across this beautiful colour combo challenge.

 I liked it so much that I decided to make a card in attempts to use up some of buttons. I have a few lot of buttons (okay, I am guilty of hoarding buttons). This is my stash...I think I'll be using buttons into the next century lol.

I was aiming for a CAS design and I wanted all my buttons to be uniform in size and shape, but use the different colors. I originally wanted some lilac buttons in the mix, but would you believe that I do not have 3 lilac buttons that are the same in my entire collection! lol So, the lilac color got switched to paper for matting purposes. Here is what I came up with:

Hello Card
Cardstock: (Crumb Cake, Whisper White) Stampin' Up!; (Phlox) Bazzill Basics
Buttons: (Tempting Turquoise, Crumb Cake, Whisper White; Subtles Collection) Stampin' Up!
Stamps: (hello; Little Bitty Bird) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Tempting Turquoise) Stampin' Up!
Other: foam mounts, white thread

Thanks for stopping by!
