Buttons and Bows: (guest design spot for Gingersnap Scraps)

Happy Tuesday, Bloggers!  Here is the second project I created for my guest designer spot over at Ginger Snap Scraps.  Today's theme is Buttons and Bows.  Since the Fourth of July holiday is just around the corner, I decided to turn to the gorgeous papers in Authentique's Glory line for my card.  I inked all the edges with Distress Ink in vintage photo.  The buttons were made with an Epiphany Crafts shape studio tool and a solid-colored sheet of paper from the paper pad.  Love how that tool allows me to make buttons that perfectly match my project!  I added some red and white twine from the Twinery.  As an afterthought, I realized I should have grunged up the twine a little so the white wasn't so white.  Ahhh...next time!  I finished off the card with some yummy cream ribbon tied into a pretty bow.

These are the products used in my project that you can find in the Ginger Snap Scraps store:
