Embossed buttons

Inspired by a button challenge I decided to do this card
I will not be in the challenge but thought you all might like my idea
And I will visit
First I glued the buttons to the card stock
I let it dry over night  then used the embossing buddy
If you look too close or enlarge you will see that didn't work out so well
I applied the versamark embossing pad over all the buttons 
I used three EP powders one at a time
It takes at least three layers to get the coverage I like
Hope you try this sometime

Using Old Photo

Got to and have some fun
 Make use of old photos pull out the memories .
this photo is from a friends back yard always in the
 bucket list to go see it in person , this place is no
 longer hers so I will share her gorgeous spot with all of you
I cut the photo out with a die, rubbed it with distress ink
rub watercolor paper with green ink and put the whole card together
The saying is from Bearded Iris (June) MFP
