I got a surprise when hubby came home from school today, he had gotten me a bunch of stamps from Studio G, and these adorable buttons. I have been wanting some greenery stamps, and he got me a couple of different ones. So I made this card for my sissy, its already in the mail, surprised me too, most of my cards are still sitting in a drawer lol. I stamped these stalks of leaves, then added some flower shaped buttons to look like, well, flowers lol. I used my favorite punch to put a border, and this gorgeous sheer ribbon. Very springlike I think, and she lives in Michigan, she could use some spring time lol.
