I hope that the fact that my buttons have a few colours is okay for the CAS50 challenge. This is the FIRST card I've been able to make since fracturing my wrist- and foot - back in October 2009.
As it happened, Teal is one of my mom's favourite colours, and she'd requested buttons on a card for her birthday. So I already had this card made today - and it seemed to fit the CAS challenge.
A note to Benzi and Pam124.... Benzi - thanks so much for the wonderful full size sewing machine that you sent me through the mail! It's just fabulous!! I just put my buttons on the automatic setting of that fancy new fullsize sewing machinen that you sent me! Why Pam aka Fruitcake could not use the very same operational sewing machine that you sent her - we can only blame on Fruitcake's 1-2 digit IQ. So sad, Fruitcake! ahhh!
Teal buttons from SU, other buttons from Papertrey, stamped and sponged in SU teal and SU old olive. The white little white bit was an afterthought created by square nesties!
Thanks for looking , and I'll be back tommorow to comment more!

So glad you're back into cardmaking...your creations always were a fave of mine! Loved your little dialog with Brenda and Pam - too funny! Oh yes, I'm supposed to comment on your card...GORGEOUS! The button flowers are adorable and I'm loving the popularity of teal/turquoise this year!
