I had this irresistible urge to do something with buttons and this is the result...

I used a cream toned Stonehenge cardstock which is a very nice weight to hold all these buttons. I glued on a scrapbook paper of vintage buttons. Cut out my large "B" from some left over of the cardstock. Wrote in various "Button" quotes with a quill nib and Sumi ink. Cut off any shanks from the buttons and used my Dremel to smooth down any high points. I then glued them using Diamond Glaze.
