Buttons and Bows at One Stop Crafts

Happy Saturday, friends! I am in a totally SPRING mood. I was finally able to open up the windows and let the fresh in. The fur herd was QUITE excited and had to pile on top of each other to sniff the air and get one step closer to the birds. They love having the windows open and it doesn't seem to intimidate the birds, squirrels, and rabbits who peer in at them from the outside. This is an old pic, but the cats are still members of the 7 part fur herd and this is a common site year round at our house.

I made a very spring-ey card for this weeks challenge over at One Stop Crafts Card Challenge. The Design Team received super cute images from our sponsor, Patties Creations. Take a moment to pop over to the challenge blog to see their inspiration and then create and link up your own buttons and bows project.

Thanks for looking! Spicey Cat Chick =^..^=
My Creation
I decided to punch out the center of my flower and fill it in with buttons. I lifted the panel with pop up dots and used a ribbon to cover the edges.
Image Detail
I used glue dots to give a little lift to a few petals and the butterfly.
