More Button Bits!

Happy Monday all! (at least it is for all you mom's out there where school is already in session, right?!) We don't start back until September 9, and we'll be changing things up a bit this year with both boys attending private school. Our youngest is delirious to start well I'm a nervous wreck! It's quite a long bus ride too, and since we get over 300 inches of snow every winter I'm feeling iffy.

Onto today's card. I was really excited to put together all these colors, but was disappointed once I was done. Somehow it seemed better before I assembled it, if you know what I mean. The IDEA seemed better than the actual PRODUCT.

Raspberry Fizz, Chocolate, Whisper White, Lavender Moon, Aqua Mist. It looks too "put together" or something. But I do love the stamp set, Everyday Button Bits! I also used Background Basics:Retro for the chocolate card base. I can't get enough of that set and use it frequently. Don't you like white ink on Chocolate? Scrumptious! I also think the photo is a bit washed out, but because I already sent this card out, I can't re-take it! Love those buttons though...*grin*

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday and thanks for stopping by!

I think it's a great card Dana - not 'too put together' but 'polished'! The colour scheme is gorgeous and I love the co-ordinated choice of buttons and ribbon!

That Background Basics: Retro is *so* going in next month's order, assuming there aren't too many irresistible new goodies next month!
