Day 11 - Buttons

Shirt buttons come in lots of different sizes and styles and have a great pearlescent sheen to them.  I love to see them en masse in fabric projects, on cards or simply stored in glass bottles and jars.  I raided my stash to create a shiny bauble for today's card... the buttons look pretty good teamed up with the silver mirror cardstock.

Great how you've made this ''chique' and elegant silverwhite bauble! I once made a christmastree with blue buttons, that looked more cute...

What a great idea. As the buttons are a bit pearlescent, the bauble gives an elegant effect!

buttons are such a great idea for card making - I used them a lot all year round.

This is a great idea Beccy, but I don't have enough buttons. I will have to use some digital ones. Thank you for your inspiration each day.

I like seeing buttons on cards. I so wish I had my Mom's button box--it was a hat box, I believe. None of us can find it!

Bless my buttons, I love your shiny buttons with the white dots. Very pretty. Those must be some pretty tiny buttons.

Will go and look at my buttons, but I think my white ones are very plain not pearly. Thanks Beccy for sharing this lovely idea. Hugs, Ursula

A fabulous card - I have loads of old shirt buttons (I always cut buttons off old clothes before they go into the rag bag) so I must CASE your card!

Lovely idea. I like the way the light plays on the buttons, just like light plays on baubles
