So all you have to do is create a card with a Clean and Simple design, and include buttons and twine in your project!!

 

Buttons and Twine are two of my most favorite go-to embellishments – I reach for them nearly every time I create.  There’s just something about the whimsical feel that both buttons and twine add to a project that I just can’t help myself.  Here’s what I created for the challenge:

Denami Design has very generously agreed to be our sponsor for this week (and they’ve provided the DT with some of the most delicious buttons I’ve ever used), and I’m pretty sure you’ll be excited when you find out what they’re offering up as a prize for this challenge – thank you Denami Design!!  You’ll have to click on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what the prize is, though.  That’s also where you’ll find all the details of the challenge, as well as more “buttons and twine” inspiration from the other Girl Fridays!!
