I couldn’t resist making another card for the Moxie Fab World’s Trigger Tuesday challenge…I have these fabulous vintage button cards of my Grandpa’s and one of them matched the blue in this inspiration photo :)  I love how they say “Made in Canada” at the bottom :)  To justify making another card just for fun…I turned it into another one of my Sunshine and Smiles cards…the set of cards I’m making for a friend at work :)  “Justify” in the fact that I have a long “to do” list this week and have to stay on schedule! ;)

I was once again inspired by the colours and buttons of the Trigger photo :)  Okay, no more posts today!!  It’s still bright and sunny out and I’ve just brewed some fresh coffee…one more card to make today and then off to finish organizing my die collection!!  I’m writing out all their names too so I can be more specific in my recipes :)  Thanks for popping in AGAIN! LOL

Goodness, Maureen, this is a knockout! The papers you've chosen compliment that gorgeous button card perfectly, and the slightly rumpled doily and seam binding add just the right finishing touches for a truly vintage look. Love it!
