Cute as a Button!

I am loving the color combos over at Colour Combos Galore so couldn't pass up playing along with another one.  This is actually their challenge #220 from February however they were running late with posting it so it is open for entries until the end of March.   I so love the combination of pink and green so I actually made two cards using this inspiration board.

Flower Image - Unity KOTM, Sentiment - Stampin' Up!
Inks, Paper, Cardstock and Buttons are also from Stampin' Up!
Other:  Tria Markers to colour in petals and leaves.

Flower Stem Stamp from Stampin' Up, Ink:  Black Memento, Colour Tria Markers,
Paper:  Echo Park, Buttons from own Stash, EK Success Photo Corner Punch

Using similar colours I also took inspiration from this photo from the stem of the glass holding the flowers to use a flower stem stamps on both cards.  The tonal light and shade of the pinks of the flower petals on the first card and the green mat underneath the glass, translated into my sentiment panel at the bottom of the flower and the framing of both the sentiment and image with green on the first card and the grass on my second card.

Buttons and a CAS Design are all criteria from the challenges over at Stamptacular Sunday's and Paper Players this week hence these elements are also included in my cards today. 

Challenges Entered:

Colour Combos Galore - Inspiration Board #220
Stamptacular Sundays' - Challenge #155 Cute as a Button
Paper Players - Challenge #87 CAS with Buttons

Two wonderful cards! In the second card, I really liked how you created the grass yourself and the simplicity of the three buttons as flowers is so much fun! Beautiful color scheme, too...I can see why you would want to make two! ;) You can't really go wrong with pink and green! So happy to have you share your card with us at The Paper Players!
