D2D Saturday Challenge - Buttons, Buttons, and Buttons!

Aloha and WOW! this makes two weeks in a row that I'm posting on Saturday! YAY! But sadly this will probably end soon as school in Hawaii starts on Monday (insert crying sad face!) and my schedule will be back to being totally crazy! Oh well, gotta love helping those kiddos too! Anyway, here's my sample for this week's D2D's Saturday Challenge. This week Kathy Winter wants to see at least 3 buttons on your creation. Well, I think I went a bit overboard, but you know how that is!
I kinda CASE'd one of my own cards (see the original in this post), but this time I erased the shamrocks from the jar image and glued buttons on instead. It is a shaped card and measures about 4.25x5.5" Gotta love supersized digi's! :) I had a heck of a time finding a sentiment I liked but thought this one kinda worked (it's from a SU! set of the same name) and I made it a faux metal rimmed tag by running a silver paint pen around the edge.

Here's some other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Simon Says Challenge - shaped cards
2. Daring Cardmakers - Cute as a button: use buttons as the focus of the card
3. Freshly Brewed Challenge - shaped card
4. Lexi's Creations - shaped card
5. Speedy the Cat’s Friends Challenge - no ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to play along in this week's challenge!

I love button jars! This is perfect and the receiver could actually pop those buttons off and use them, like if it is given to your mom, she could do that! Perfect/card gift!
