Buttons, Bows and Paisley Petals

Hello, Everyone!  Today I used the Paper Players Sketch Challenge #84 as the starting point for my card.
The sketch, shown here, uses a row of 3 elements down the center of the card.  I chose some clear buttons to make my set of  three and used them to showcase some Paisley Petals DSP underneath.  The background of the card uses another very bold pattern in the Paisley Petals collection.
The Happy Birthday sentiment was placed on two tiny jewelry tags which were tied to the bottom of the card with crochet thread. The  bow on each button was also tied with crochet thread.

 The next photo shows the Paisley Petals pattern again, carried over to the inside of the card.  The Not Quite Navy paper strip also repeats some of the color on the card front.

This  card is a bit different from those I usually make.  This  pattern is a bit bold for my taste, but I think it worked up into a pretty card.  I hope you  find it interesting!
Be sure to visit the Paper Players and see what others have done with this fun sketch.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
