Flash Back Friday- Buttons

Two weeks in a row for posting my stash creations!!! This week, I dug out a container of themed buttons that I have had around for ages.  I think I bought them from QVC when I first started scrapbooking over 10 years ago...

I was looking through the variety and came across the football themed set.  My DH LOVES football and I still needed a birthday card for him, so out came the helmet and 3 football buttons.

DH is a Colts fan (yes...still...even with all of the changes)  In keeping with the flash back theme, I pulled out my brilliant blue cardstock and ink. Both are retired from SU, but I love the 'basic blue' color so much that I had a little extra stuck back.  It also worked well for the team colors.  I also used an old sketch.  I'm not sure where it was from, but I liked it...  Even the birthday sentiment is retired!  The only current items used were the whisper white cardstock and the embossing folder!

Well, that's it for me today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting!

  1. Fantastic use of your buttons!!! This is ADORABLE. :) Can you say that for a masculine card? Adorable? Perhaps I should have said it exudes a very testosterone feel to it. Ha! I love it! You should enter this at Top Tip Tuesday for the "Dig Out the Old" challenge. :)
