All right, are you ready to see what I came up with? I have to tell you, I had tons of brads and eyelets, but I gave most of those to my oldest DD, who is 9 y.o. and loves card making almost as much as her mommy ;D;D, but I also had A TON of buttons. I very, very rarely use buttons on my cards, ever so often when I made a masculine one, so I got my bag of PTI buttons out and went for it,hehe. Wanna see?
