Papertrey Ink Button Challenge

Papertrey Ink is celebrating its fourth anniversary this month and it's high time I joined in on the festivities. Today, Nichole Heady issued a button challenge to celebrate the upcoming Button Boutique release. We're supposed to use buttons in a creative way and have 'til 7:00am EST tomorrow to play along for a chance to win! I immediately thought of Friendship Jar Fillers because every time I try to buy Friendship Jar it's out of stock so I still don't have the jar itself. I cut a vase from felt, decorated it with buttons (a gift from Meg) and tied some pink sorbet twine around it. I coloured in the flowers with Copics and split a sentiment from Masculine Motifs, bending it to fit the curve of the leaves. The last step was to adhere the vase to the card.
