Seize The Birthday: Buttons or Rhinestones?

Oh, this challenge was fun!  Our current challenge at Seize The Birthday has a Toppings option of Buttons or Rhinestones...if you choose to use it.  As usual, anything long as it's a Birthday card!

Well, I jumped at the chance to use a few of my vintage buttons.  Love them!  I also used a vintage doily that I bought at an estate auction a few years ago.

It's been too long since I created a vintage style card, so this really was a lot of fun.  I hope you'll play along with us at Seize The Birthday.  I love seeing everyone's take on our challenges!

Now it's time to click on over to Seize The Birthday and see what the rest of the Design Team has created for your inspiration!
