Penny Black Challenge

Well the challenge this week over at Penny Black is "Buttons Galore" so I decided to make a wee quick card so I could join in the fun.
Sadly I cannot tell you who the papers are by as they were nothing more than some scraps I had lying around which I matted & layered with some white card.
I used Colorbox ink pads to stamp & colour the image then done some doodling around the edges before attaching buttons to the corners.
The flower was cut from a piece of scrapbook paper & I used a large button for the centre.
Most of the housework is now caught up... never get much done when Rob is around as I like to try & get him to relax when he has time off. Got some more organising to sort out in the garage... trust me you wouldn't believe it if you saw just how much is crammed into it just now to the extent I can't even get the lawn mower out!
Must check out some challenges first though in the hopes that I can squeeze something else in today.
Happy crafting
