I don't know why, but I found this navy blue card so appealing. It is my first card using buttons - yes, I resisted using buttons on a card as long as I could. . .

There is something about buttons I don't like. I don't know what it is and even after really thinking about it, I am still not sure why. I wonder if I am resistant because it is yet another embellishment to have a collection of! I will have to have different sizes, different colors, different shapes, etc. To me, there is nothing worse than wanting to use a certain embellishment and can't because I don't have just the perfect one to use. That was my greatest frustration too, when I started stamping. I would get this great idea and not be able to implement it; haven't we all experienced that one? Then I have to wonder if the card is so appealing to me because it has a new element I've not used before. Life is filled with wonderful mysteries!
