Learning to Dance (Mojo Monday #176)

Hi there all! Snow Day here today. Not actually very much snow by Rocky Mountain standards, but boy, is is FREEZING! Something like 15 below outside and that's not even taking the wind chill into account, brrrrrrrrrrrr...... I kept thinking on this sketch over at Mojo Monday. I did the round one yesterday in some other colors, go here to see. I LOVE these Ice Cream Parlour papers from the Stampin' Up! sale-a-bration for this year! Such happy bright colors:) Just what I needed for this dreary day. I used my Sizzix embosslit to make the paper buttons, taped and then machine stitched them in place, then added a few real buttons on top and hand stitched them into place with some linen thread. Got my Verve notebook paper and sentiment stamps down first of course. Everything on my card is going along just peachy until I tried to stamp some of the Verve swirly stamps down above the buttons. UGH, I made such a mess! I tried to fix my error by turning the stamped swirls into some pen art swirls, but, let's face it, pen art is just not my thing! Anyway, I hope it doesn't look TOO awful. If everything hadn't been sewn down, I woulda ripped the whole thing apart & started over! 

Well, I hope you like my (slightly messed up) card! Have a stellar day!
