Kraftin' Kimmies Challenge # 2

The challenge this week at Kraftin Kimmies was to create a card/project using buttons. I knew that I had to enter into this challenge. When I was growing up my mom had a stash of buttons. And I mean a stash of buttons. She had a popcorn tin filled to the top with buttons that she had been given. (Plus she had 3 large glass pickle jars filled.) When I was little my younger sister and I would play with the buttons for hours. We would each start with a button and we had to see how many we could find of that same button. The person who found the most in 10 minutes won. (oh that brings back so many memories.)

So when this challenge was posted I went to my mom and asked for her can of buttons and started looking through them to find that one perfect button to fit into the theme of my card. I decided to keep my card simple. I added a button to the snowflake to give the snowflake a little more character. I also added glitter to inside of the button and to the snowflake to give them both a bit of sparkle.
