Buttons, Bows and Butterflies

It's time for a new 2-week Sunshine Mail Foundation Challenge (Feb 15-28). The only real rule is that you send in at least one card (Donation guidelines here). 

We're sponsored again by Red Rubber Designs, and this time I got to play with their Happiness Is set:

This is a rubber stamp, so the images & sentiment are actual size (this is a 4.25x5.5 card). Just right! I stamped the jar over the first image, and colored everything with Copics.

The buttons & butterfly were made using Embosslit dies from Stampin' UP! and distressed with SU! Barely Banana ink. I drew thread on the buttons with a PITT artist pen, and added a shaped button to the butterfly on the tag.

I used a black Sakura Glaze pen for the border on the front, but a pen for the tag & inside border.

There's just enough room to write a message.
