B is for Buttons

The ABC challenge this week is:

B for Buttons

This did actually start of as the entry for the previous week which was A for Animals, however time was not on my side so I didn't get it finished, so adapted it to fit this weeks challenge!

As there has been a bit of a birthing explosion amongst the staff at nursery (two down, two to go!) and the last two will be girls, I thought I'd better make a start on their cards.

All paper elements are from Polkadoodles - Candy Doodles cd including the birdie. I cut the birdie out, layered the wings and added some fancy tail feathers with some little buttons I found in my stash.

The round button letters I printed as A5 size rather than the standard A4 so they would be small enough for the card.

I've added some wire legs to the birdie and that's it - all completed! I have made another similar card which I'll show tomorrow. The hardest bit was making the legs and gluing them to the card!
