Autumn

The sketch from Nina B:

I decided to pull out some Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg that I won in some blog candy.  I put the main panel on foam strips so that the buttons are underneath.  The leaf is cut with my Slice Fall/Back to School.

Lovely card, Laurel. The use of the buttons on the leaf is brilliant!

Gorgeous!! Love the zig zag!! Do you use your regular sewing machine for cards or a little one? I'm thinking about getting a little machine just for cards.

Have a great day!!

Great take on the sketch, Laurel. I'm with Amy, it would be hard to de-hoard this many buttons on one card, but it's worth it. Your card is beautiful :-).
