    I’m crazy about all the elements to this card Mary. I especially LOVE the buttons.

  3. Great design, Mary! I do love the designer series paper that complements that stamp set. It’s very versatile. I love the attention the “guy” cards are getting now.

  4. Thanks, BK. I’m still a fan of buttons and loved having a reason to use them on this card!

  5. I love your mix of patterns and colors, Mary! This is a super-cute, but still super-sophisticated, card. Love it!
