Here's the inside of my card:
I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this challenge, and, if I do say so myself, it came out pretty much the way I dreamed it up! My only roadblock was finding an orange and a violet button in my mason-jar-full-o-buttons. Not a one of either color. DOH!! What's a crafty gal to do? Well, I knew you could color rhinestones with alcohol markers for a custom color. So I thunk to myself: Self, why not try that on some clear buttons? Yeah, totally worked!! I gave each button a double coating with my SN markers. (Crafty Tip: The more coats, the darker the color gets. Same goes for coloring rhinestones. FYI) After adhering the twine on the back side of the white panel, I tied bows on all the buttons. Using a toothpick, I dabbed Glossy Accents on the bows to keep them from unbowing, then more Glossy Accents to glue them down on the panel. When all was dry, I adhered the white panel using foam dots to the card base. On the inside, I stamped the sentiment and then thought it needed something more. (As I always do!), so I found and used that cute button stamp under it. (using 3 DI's and stamping off first on scrap paper before stamping on the card itself). Me likey!
So, think you're up to this challenge? I bet you are! Now go forth and crank out a project using buttons and bows and make sure you link up to SHOPPING OUR STASH!
