PanPastel Challenge 4 - Add 2 buttons...

Hello my fellow bloggers.

Today I want to share my card I've made for the PanPastel Challenge. The challenge, to me was "an easy" one. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE buttons. In fairness, I hav'nt used butoons for a while so it was fantastic to have to pull them out and have a play. Even though I only added the 2 as the challenge said, it gave me the "kick in behind" to remember to use them again. As many other crafters Im in the habbit of "forgetting" to use the things I have, and instead only use "my new toys"...
For this wee card I had a play with some Parchment. Its not my usual thing to do, but rumaging around a drawer in my craft room I found  a wee set i had. Only ever used it once or twice before. I sat and played and the idea came quite easy. And although i only added a wee bit of the Panpastel itself , i love the suttle effect i gave.
If you fancy taking part in our challenge, come join us at:

What I did:
Make the parchment design and mat onto blue mirricard with 4 small brads.
Mat onto the base card.
Add the bow and buttons.
With a small sponge, add the Phthalo Blue Panpastel to the edges of the card and parts of the parchment design.

What i used:
Base card
Blue mirri card
Brads, bow and buttons
Phthalo blue Panpastel and sponge

Hope you all like my wee card, and THANK YOU for any comments.
Hope to see you at at the Panpastel Challenge
