Easter Silhouette card

 I found this design on SCS and thought it was perfect for springtime.  The stamp set is from Stampin Up as is the tulip embossing folder used for the blue cardstock edges.  The buttons are from the Stampin Up embosslit die -- they look so real and are so easy to make!  The difficult part was running the linen thread thru the paper buttons and aligning them so they would fit nicely around the card, leaving enough length between them.  I added a bow made from taffeta ribbon and attached one small button to the center of the bow.  A tiny tag was punched after the word Easter was stamped on the paper.  This was then attached to the end of the linen thread with a glue dot holding it in place.  I like the way the Sahara Sand ink and paper worked together with the Marina Mist cardstock.  Let me know what you think!
