Less is More wk25 - button or ribbon

This week's challenge at Less is More is 'button or ribbon' or plurals thereof.  I really did think this was going to be easy - I love using buttons, although I don't use my enormous ribbon stash often enough.  Mrs Mojo heard about the boys being on the LONG school holiday though, and she's done a runner... can't say I blame her really, the noise in my house is fairly unbearable.  I did manage to make a couple of cards though...


Not much to say about this one really!  White linen cardstock is from Papermill Direct, the pink probably is too.  The green gingham is a digi one from Pink Petticoat, flower buttons and ribbon from my stash.  The 'friend' sentiment is Stampin' Up.


Kraft cardstock is Stampin' Up, with dark brown card from Papermill Direct.  The circle stamp is from an Inkadinkado set, sentiment is CC Designs and the grid stamp is Kaisercraft - all stamped in memento 'rhubarb' ink.  Button and bakers twine from my stash.

I'm also entering my cards for Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge, as everything apart from the card bases have come from my scraps.
