Cute as a Button - CD #542 "Lucky 7"

Here is my Design Team card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #542 "Lucky 7" using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #518. Went to my stash for striped patterned paper but none matched up to the colors in Lucky 7... so went to my border dies and decided to use the the button border die for Any Occasion Baby and/or Toddler card.  Cut two each of four of the softer colors (Seabrook, Periwinkle, Honey Butter and Peach) and adhered with glue to white cardstock and adhered to a Periwinkle layer.  


Looking at the background... it was telling me to dust off my Cricut and use once again "Cute As a Button" which I had purchased as early as 2016 and time to use it again. Ended up being many layers of color until I got the color I wanted.  

Have the button, now I need the "Cute"... with Easter around the corner I chose the little bunny stamp set from the CTMH Daisy cardmaking kit.  Stamped three Bunnies, colored with Copic Sketch pens, fussy-cut and used 3D thin foam tape for 
dimension.  Sentiment positioned over forehead in which the ears and the button in the middle was used for the bow in the sketch. 

The sentiment and bunny were getting lost among the rows of buttons so decided to cut and adhere a heart circular frame in pink with a white center and adhered the bunny to the frame.  The sentiment was still being lost so I chose to cut a white lacy banner and adhered the sentiment to the banner.  And wallah... "Cute as a Button". 

Cut one more button border and adhered it to the right inside of card.

A really clever design...and it's beautiful too. The button 'stripes' look fabulous in the pretty pastel shades and tie in perfectly with the die cut sentiment. Thank you for joining in at Crafty Catz this week.
