CAS Button Card for PPA 91

This week's challenge over at Pals Paper Arts is to create a Clean And Simple (CAS) card featuring buttons.  Here is the inspiration photo:

Since today is the first day for the new Summer Mini, I decided to use one of my favourite stamps from it:  Hellos Blossoms.  Here is my card:

CAS card for PPA91 using Hello Blossoms (from the NEW mini!) and Flight of the Butterfly

Inside of card
I love how bright and cheerful this card is!  It is sure to  brighten anyone's day...even on a gloomy, rainy Sunday like today!  Here is how I put this card together:

Starting with a strip of whisper white cardstock, I rounded the upper corners and then stamped only the stems from the Hello Blossoms stamp, inking it with my old olive marker.  I then adhered buttons to the stems using glue dots.  (For the "thread" in the buttons, I cut very narrow strips of cardstock and threaded them through my buttons, securing them on the back with glue dots.)  I then stamped the sentiment and butterfly from the Flight of the Butterfly set in pacific point and melon mambo ink respectively.  I adhered the stamped images to a  slightly larger mat of  pacific point cardstock,  the upper corners of which I had also rounded.  I then added the daffodil delight 3/8" taffeta  ribbon and the strip of "grass" in old olive.  I adhered the whole thing to a card base in daffodil delight that I had embossed with my perfect polka dots embossing folder.  For the inside, I stampd the sentiment in pacific point.  I stamped the butterfly on a scrap of melon mambo and punched it out with my butterfly punch.  I adhered it with glue dots. Fast and easy and cute!
