Rusty Sage Rose

Good morning all!

My card this morning is my contribution for the CCEE challenge #1021, 'A Sketch challenge with a Twist'. We were to following the sketch below and include a button somewhere in our design.

Here is the sketch :

To begin with I was wondering how to include a button on an elegant card, but including tiny buttons in a complementary color works quite well, I think. I haven't worked with Sage Shadow in a long time (in fact I think it is one of the colors that has been retired) but I found that it was the perfect complement to the 7 Gypies Venice DP that I got from Archiver's last week. The Rose stamp is also a fairly old set from Stampin'Up! and I have not used it very much because I could never line up the layers. Then, I remembered that I bought a Stamp-a-ma-jig a long time ago and never opened it. And wow, if I'd used this as soon as I bought it, my 2-step stamping sets may have seen a lot more use!!!!

Have a great start to your week!
