Ink - Hibiscus Burst/Black
Card - Stamper's Select White/Hibiscus White/Grey (SU)
Buttons - Hibiscus Burst
Other - Grey ribbon (SU)/Crafter's Tool Kit/Bind-It-All/Heart punches (EK Success)

Gorgeous card & great challenge (I've just set buttons as my challenge at Charisma - so great thinking! LOL) So I'm combining my card for that with yours if that's ok as I've used Papertrey on the card.

thanks & here's mine

Nothing too inventive with my use of buttons, but then again it is my first card to use buttons so I think that makes it inventive for me!

Beautiful cards as always ladies ;0)

My card is pretty much CASed from loads of cards I've seen all over the web - As soon as I saw make a card using buttons this is what I saw in my mind. I love it so much I'm making a whole set of them. Thanks for the idea ;0)

Here's the link

Best wishes
