Magnolia-Licious Challenge DT - Inspirational Photo - Buttons!

Woohoo!!!  It is time for another Magnolia-Licious Challenge and we have a gorgeous photo for your inspiration full of buttons!  We'd like to see you use buttons on your creations this fortnight, any colour and any amount!  I created a pair of little cards for a friend's little girls to wish them luck on their first day at school.  The cards are almost identical in design - didn't want them falling out over who had the cutest card :)!!
Here's a closer look at the first card.
I used the gorgeous Autumn Tilda with Pencils #320 and coloured the image with copics.  I gave Tilda the same colour hair as the recipient - I love to do that, makes the card so much more personal I think!
I used the Back 2 School sentiment from Whiff of Joy as the little girl is starting her third year in school.  I added lots of buttons from my stash and a flower too.
The best of Luck sentiment is also from Whiff of Joy.  I added a large butterfly cut with a Martha Stewart punch and added some lace from my stash too.
Here's a close up of the second card!!
As you can see, I used the same image but this time coloured her with blonde hair to match the recipient's  hair colour!
It was this little girl's first day at school.  For the sentiment I used a Whiff of Joy stamp "It's Your Day" and added the "1st" to it by hand.  I used a different die for the sentiment mat as the one I used on the first card wouldn't fit the sentiment!  The rest of the details are exactly the same as for the first card.
I hope you like them and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-Licious Challenge!  Don't forget, Diana sponsors our challenge and we now have a secret special surprise for the lucky winner!!

Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations!  Thanks for looking! x
