This is my second hand stitched 'hi'. First one is tucked away in some scraps. I used chain stich to stich and then stiched this cute little green button on 'i'. I think this is also the first time that I have ever used a button my my card. I love buttons and ribbons but rarely use them. This Christmas I splurged on craft goodies which I bought from newly opened Hobby craft store. For this card, I learned how to make a bow from ribbon. I did the faux stiching with green sharpie around the circle edges.I am entering the card for the following challenges: That craft place : buttons and bows Fab and Funky : Something new....... I got a pack of new buttons. Scrap-Creations: Some thing old something new.
