Three Minute Button Buddies

Can you guess what I think of this week's ColourQ colour palette? Yes, there are no prizes for working out that I love them as usual! There's a great inspiration photo too. I really like the floral pillow case and one of the flowers on it reminded me of the fabulous stylised flower in the Button Buddies stamp set. That flower coordinates with the small scallop circle punch which makes for a very quick and easy card! Come and have a look:

After I'd stamped the flower and cut them out with the punch, I stamped the flowers again - this time in Lucky Limeade, and cut the middles out with my 3/4" circle punch. These make lovely flower centres and add a bit of interest to the card when they're popped up with a dimensional.

The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations which is a very faithful servant to me!

Here's what you'll need to make today's card:
Stamps: Button Buddies, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade
Card stock: Whisper White, Basic Grey
Other: Scallop circle and 3/4" circle punches, stamp-a-majig

I'm loving having my teenage daughter home on study leave as she does some of her revising with me while I'm working and is great company. While she's at my desk I get her to pass me things which can be quite entertaining. Yesterday, for example, when I asked her to pass me my Snail adhesive, she made it slide along the sofa and added slimy noises!

Thanks for popping in today. I shall be back tomorrow with an idea I had using the new Labels framelits and you're very welcome to join me!
