Valentine Button Card

I found this idea over at KWerner's blog. I just had to try it. I actually made it a couple of weeks ago, I figured it was getting close to (Love) Day, and it makes a great Valentines Day card. I Love all of the buttons! I had a jar of buttons that I bought years ago, I finally used some of them. I am trying to use some of my stash of supplies, and scraps of paper, that I have collected over the years. I don't like throwing any paper away! I try to be frugal and try to stretch my dollar as far as possible. I guess you have to be when this is a hobby and you're not getting paid for it. I love doing it though!!
Paper: Craft card stock
Ink: Zig- red pen
Accessories: Lots of buttons!

Oh cool! I really liked this idea when I saw it!! Now I'm all inspired again to try it again.

I realize that I never commented you back about the watermark. I use Photoshop and that's the only way I know how to do it. I just typed out my text in gray and then drag it over my pics to create the watermark look. Hope that helps!
