Free Image Card

It started buy buying some crafty bits, you know how it is right?

I bought a pack of buttons, pretty metal ones and soon realised that the packaging was just too darn pretty to throw away.

I carefully removed the buttons then got to work adapting the packaging into a card.


Really it was like one of those buy 1 and get 1 free moments.

The patterned card and the images all came from the button box. Santoro Mirabelle from Riverside Crafts in Market Deeping.


I did use one of the buttons entwined into a silk ribbon.


Also a Fantastic Ribbons ribbon and a Mei Flower ribbon slide and pearls.

Blog Hop day tomorrow, be sure to hop back here.

It's lovely Jak I do that sometimes using the paper flowers come in etc why not recycle into something pretty
