Happy 55th Annivesary!

I'm back from vacation and back in my craft room! This card is for my in-laws anniversary, which is today. They've been married 55 years! Pretty good track record I'd say. :) As luck would have it, this card also fits this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Buttons Galore.

I received the cute little hedgie image in a swap. I tried to find the name, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. If you know, please let me know. The hearts on the right side are buttons. I put black floss through the holes. For some reason, it really bugs me to see buttons with nothing in the holes. I used a Mojo Monday sketch from several months ago for the layout. This is one of my favorite sketches and I've used it several times.

Thanks for stopping by. It's good to be back!

Fantastic card Judy - fab image and colours, and love the heart shaped buttons. I believe the hedgie is from the transparent set "Every Which Way" (it does come also as a wooden stamp but i think that would be bigger). Thanks for joining in the PBSC this week.
