Buttons

I must confess I am not a seamstress. I took me 30 mins just to find a needle and thread. I ended up finally finding a binder's needle and linen thread. But it worked just the same. This button tag is for the "Tag your'e it" weekly challenge. The challenge was to use a needle and thread. I started with an silver oval tag with scalloped edges. I stamped a damask design and then chose a few buttons to sew onto the tag. I think it has a classy look to it and I like the combination of pink, black and silver.

Beautiful! Love the stamped background and the different buttons! I'm no seamstress either and don't even possess a sewing machine but it's nice to come out our comfort zones occassionally :D Thanks so much for playing along with this theme :)

LOL!! @ turning the challenge around to finding a needle & thread!! I don't sew either, as a rule so Sarah's challenge brought me out of my zone too! I love your tag though - the stamping is gorgeous and I'm really into buttons at the moment so for me, these are a perfect touch! Love it!! Thanks so much for playing and sorry I'm so late responding - my pc has been playing up all week!! Grrr.... ;o) xx
