Fun & Fast Notes

Hi everybody, just thought I'd share a little card I made using the Fun & Fast Notes stamp set. This was one of the first stampin up sets that I got and its been a while from I've used it. The image is coloured using my Earth Elements markers, love these! and I've just matt and layered Really Rust and Summer Sun cardstock (also from the earth elements family) I seem to be doodling alot on my cards recentely, even trying out different faux stitches lol. I've took a few pictures of how I put my ribbon through my card so that my button doesn't sit out too much, you probably already knew to do this, so for those that didn't....
Punch two holes wide enough apart so that your button can fit snuggly.  Thread ribbon through and cut. Using a glue dot place button between the ribbon. (Instead of trying to match up thread, cut a thin piece of matching cardstock, thread this through the button as I have done on my card)
I am entering this card into the following challenge
Crafty Creations ~ Celebration

Enjoy the rest of your day!
