"Button, Button...

...Who's Got the Button" is the name of this fortnight's challenge at Shopping Our Stash and since I'm assuming you've already guessed we'd like to see projects with one or more buttons on them, I'll get right to what I made:

Here you see a card with just TWO (2!) buttons (they are stacked) sitting atop the vast quantity of red, yellow, orange and pink buttons I got out in readiness for making said card. This pretty much tells you everything you need to know about my process, lol. On the plus side, they made an excellent photo backdrop, so I'm calling it a win. I used up lots (and lots!) of pink, yellow and orange scraps by diecutting them with my classic Spellbinders Nestabilities diamond dies, distressing, stacking, and machine-stitching on the fruits of that labor, to make a funky argyle pattern. Two (stacked) mulberry flowers... (again a much smaller amount than I'd anticipated) ...hold the buttons, which I have threaded as a salute to my friend and former SOS colleague Leslie, who considered "nekkid" buttons to be an abomination.

Visit the SOS blog to see the fabulous button cards made by our talented Crew and then start planning what you'll link up with us this time. SOS524 runs until the evening of Monday, July 1st.
