My favourite colours card



Having not been well lately I decided to make a bright and colourfull card to cheer me up using some of my favourite colours. I love the vintage button card images and added some pretty buttons to co-ordinate with my backing paper. Some of the cute buttons were sent to me by a very generous and lovely crafting  friend Romina who lives in India. I distressed the edges of my paper to give a bit of a shabby chic look and finished off with colour co-ordinating embellishments. I was happy with the result and the colours cheered me up.
I have entered it into many challenges as usual and hope it cheers anyone that is unwell or down in the dumps.
