Buttons and Pearls

Burrrr! It's getting chilly in Vancouver! I'm just recovering from a cold which I probably got due to a lack sleep from last week.

Anyway, I bought a bag of buttons, that's right, a bag! Not that my collection wasn't enough...I bought it from a wedding liquidation sale back in June. The wedding designer was selling accessories, fabrics, hangers, etc and all the proceeds went to the Tapestry Foundation for Health Care of Mt. St. Joseph Hospital. AS bought some pretty neat stuff for her wedding while I stocked up on ribbons and buttons :)

So many buttons to choose from!

After many months, I have finally opened that bag of buttons. For CH's birthday card, I decided to make something Fall related since her birthday is exactly one month after the first day of Fall. I used some darker shades of autumn colour like brown, green, and blue so that the Happy Birthday message pops out. The button and pearls added a nice touch to the card :)

Happy Birthday, CH!

Looking at the picture below, I realized I could've placed the three pearls on top on the flowery design (like the one in the middle). My intentions were to stick the pearls to align the "birthday" word..I didn't even notice the other option :P
