What's black, white and red all over?...and a FREEBIE

 You know, I can't actually remember the punch line to that old joke from childhood but I think it was a part of gross out comedy, so I'm good with having forgotten.  ;)  I wanted to quickly share my card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 26, the Playdate Cafe 71 color splash challenge and the Shabby Tea Room 51 challenge.



I added all of these challenges together for a fun card using a button card I designed myself!  Is it just me, or are vintage button cards the latest "doily"?  I see them popping up all over and I grabbed this amazing crown image from the Graphics Fairy blog and worked up a simple button card of my own.
 I thought that you might light to use my button card too so here is the image for you to save and use if you please.  Click on the image and then save it to your computer.  If you use it, I'd love to have a link to your project in my comments to this post so I can come and see what you made.  This was so fun to make, I think I see more button card graphics in my future....
Thanks so much for visiting and spending time here today!

SUPPLIES:
Paper: DCWV
Punch: Martha Stewert
Craft supplies: buttons, floss, seed beads, lace trim, doily and vintage book print
