CropStop Button Challenge

This is one of two posts today, so be sure to scroll down for more inspiration!

This week's challenge at CropStop is to use buttons!  I had a whole treasure-trove of them I received from my pal Debbie a bunch of them found themselves a home on this card!

I used designer papers from Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl collection and a touch of faux stitching on my card.

My embellishments are actually cut from a pattern I picked up for 25cents at a yard sale!  I cut strips of the pattern, and folded them in half and in half and in half and in half lengthwise until I had a 4 inch strip.  Then I scallop cut each long edge through all of the layers.  This gives you a long scalloped strip. 

For the ruffles along the bottom of the card, I folded them in half and layered several of them to make the ruffled border.  For the rosette, I used a Gluber  I folded the scalloped lengths in half and then scrunched them in a spiral on the Gluber until I had a rosette.

Love what you have done here Michelle - using the sewing pattern paper is inspiring ! Your rose is stunning.
Wonderful and creative work, Michelle! I also have the Cosmo Cricket papers but I still don't know how to make use of them. Thanks for the inspiration. Clever work on your scallops too!
