Owl be Seeing you...

I decided to pull out the Campin' Critters cart and play. There's so many cute little images on this. Love the owl and I think the sentiment is perfect. I went a little pop dot crazy...love a little dimension! Thanks for dropping by...Lee-Ann :)

ps...I actually made my own buttons on this card...love it! I punched out 3-5/8" circles...layered and glued them together, then I used my Imaginisce punch to punch holes where they go on a button, then I stuck my buttons down on my Cricut Mat...rubbed well to make sure they're going to stay...then I applied Diamond glaze to the top...let them dry on the Cricut mat, if you don't...the image will curl and then crack if you try to flatten it after...believe me...I figured this out the hard way on images before. Once dry...I inked the edges of my buttons...and voila...homemade matching buttons. My pic doesn't show the shiny finish...but it's there. It's cloudy outside today...

Such a cute card! Thanks for explaining how to make your own buttons. Very creative! I only have single color buttons, but it'd be so fun to have matching patterned buttons to use.
