Buttons and Bows

  What to do when you wake up at 4 AM??? You go on line to Pinterest your bound to find some inspiration. I sure did. I haven't spent any time creating my own boards but I sure enjoy looking at others. I saw some amazing cards that I knew I wanted to recreate with my own touch.
Hero Arts had a button tree video that had me pulling out my old button stash. Shari's card is divine. So working with what I have on hand this is my version. It was fun to make and I really like it. Similar but unique.
My second card was inspired by 3 different cards I saw that used  small squares and rectangles to create gift boxes. So simple until you try to recreate it. Finding the right scraps to coordinate can be time consuming but putting the card together is a breeze. I will do a couple more versions of this card just for fun. 
Now I'll get back to playing with paper.  Have a great day. Thanks for looking.  Carole
