September already!

...Where did August go?! Hello and I hope you had a great weekend. I have a quick card to share made with the pocket silhouettes (so glad this made the new SU! catalogue!) It's such a fab stamp set to use. My colours are cameo coral, night of navy, whisper white, and ruby red. The button is from the mini SU catalogue along with some non SU! pale pink stitched ribbon. The linen thread used on the button has been coloured with a marker. I've tried to create the look of a button with the Martha Stewart butterfly punch by layering the button several times and then adding some diamond glaze, this doesn't show up with my rubbish photography though! Hope you have a super week and thanks so much for visiting! xx

Oh I'm loving the bold colour of this! The Pocket Silhouettes look fab and such a clever idea to create the look of a button!

Hi Karen,

Wow - I love what you have done to the background on this - it gives your card a little something extra - gorgeous :D

Thanks for your lovely comments over at my place too. Thought I would answer your question about the acetate box made with SU thick window sheets - they are really, really thick by the way. The best way I found was when I scored the box base and lid and then made the cuts to make the corners I used my cropadile to make a hole and then put in an eyelet to keep it in place as any little glue would show up - hope it helps :D
