It's Fabulous Friday at Sugar Creek Hollow!

**SECOND POST TODAY ~ Looking for my Friends With Flair post? Scroll down to the next one!**

Welcome to a Fabulous Friday with Sugar Creek Hollow! The challenge to the design team this week was to use buttons! I decided to use just one this time. I was going for a less-is-more kind of card. Check it out!

I decided to try something different with the nestie label. Usually I just fill the entire frame with what ever is the focus. This verse is much wider than it is tall, however, and there would be a lot of extra space at the top and bottom. The paper I used is from K & Co., which is double sided, so I took some of the reverse pattern from the background paper to fill in on the bottom part of the label die. Trim with a edge punch, and voila! A flower with a button center is all that was needed to finish off this card. I also used Antique Linen Distress ink on the edges of the focal panel and sponged a little all over the white cardstock to tone it down, too.

Great card! I like how you layed out the text onto the top half of the die cut and decorated the bottom with another piece.
