LIM Recipe, challenge 25 number 2 :0)

Hi Folks, I've had a painful afternoon, I'm not one to be beaten by a challenge so I had another go at the LIM Challenge to use, buttons or ribbon.
This is a close up of the button! I know it's only a button but this is THE BUTTON, the first I've used on a card for years and years and years LOL

Well here it is, I hope you'll tell me honestly what you think :0)
I'll be honest, you wouldn't want to see the mess I've created in my crafty room, it looks like there's been a small explosion, definitely not a pretty sight, I shall be all evening sorting it out, ah! well small problem in the scheme of things!
I used Paper Smooches Boob Tubes by Kim Hughes
You sentiment is PTI die
Diamond Glaze for screen.

lisa said...

Now you're going to think me very strange, Gay but do you have to do close ups of Buttons. I had to turn off at that point. I have a button phobia so there is not one to be spied in my craft room or practically my house!!!!
It's a great card, apart from the button, though.
Hugs Lisax
