Cuttlebug and Buttons Card
I'm entering this card into two challenges, the Cuttlebug Spot which is to make a card with your favourite Cuttlebug embossing folder, and the Crafty Creations challenge which this week is to use buttons.
I used the allegro folder on cream speckle card, and rubbed over it with copper ink. The backing paper was a freebie a few weeks ago on Tinker & Co, and I used this to make the flowers too. I scrunched the flowers up and inked the edges to give them a distressed look, I got this idea from a card making magazine, and I attached the buttons to the flowers with hemp. The butterfly is embossed with the swiss dots folder and rubbed over with the same copper ink.
