Count Your Blessings

Hello, friends, Mindy here today with a card for this week's challenge at the Classy Cards 'N Such blog, #42 Buttons and Bows!

I started this card by embossing an A2 size sheet of card stock, with the Daisy Flourish embossing folder, sending it through my Cuttlebug machine. I then took the Memory Box designer stencil Garden Stems, and added Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to use as stems for my button and bow flowers. 

To give the background some definition, I highlighted the embossing with a white pen, a touch of Gold Glitter and some Cantaloupe colored Liquid Pearls. It was then set aside to let dry.

I then took some ribbon, and made three small single bow flowers and adhered a single gold colored small Medallion Sparklers button in the centers. The bows were then adhered to the background at the ends of the stems to look like a bouquet of flowers, with a double loop bow tied at the bottom of the bouquet. 

I also stamped a saying, Count Your Buttons and Blessings, on a banner strip and used  Joy! Foam Pads Large to give the banner some dimension and adhered it to the front of the card. 

The whole time I was working on this card, the song "Button and Bows" sung by Doris Day was going through my head.  It was a little before my time, but parts of the song were familiar to me, and those parts kept repeating over and over all day.

Your card is so pretty! Thanks Mindy!
