Heartfelt Thanks

Happy Friday! I'm back with two more thank you cards.
They use Blooming Button Bits again and the sentiment is from Everday Classics (2009 Anniversary set). I loved Betsy Veldman's card design here , so I replicated the layout, changing only a few things.



I am really loving these button sets--I reorganized my buttons and got new jars and shelves from Ikea to accomodate my growing collection.



Hibiscus Burst and Plum Pudding are so fresh with New Leaf--not my favorite color, usually, but I love it here!

Thanks for having a look!
Melissa

Such pretty cards - I love the layout and you've added just the right amount of buttons! Not too many, not too little!

Scrolled through your posts for the week. You've been busy creating some great cards. Thought I didn't want the Blooming Button Bits and Tiny Treats, but after visiting here, I'm reconsidering. Great cards.
