Button Up - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
I'm going to whizz through my post today as pins and needles in my arm are driving me crazy, ok crazier lol.
& this week our challenge is

My lovely teamies and I are featuring some Crafters Companion products on our creations this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to join our challenge.
I decided to create a Spring card, much more CAS than usual but as my arm / shoulder hasn't been playing nice for a few days I admit I took the easy option lol.
 A big thank you to Crafters Companion who very kindly sent my lovely teamies and I some fabby products to play with. In my package were some green Spectrum Noirs as well as the 8x8 embossing folder I've used.
My card has been created using Simon Says Stamps "Green Apple" cardstock & I embossed some vellum to overlay it, and I added twine, pearls and of course a button.
It was nice to play with the Spectrum Noirs for a change but I'll be staying a copic girl as I prefer the soft brush nib that copic markers have where as the Spectrum Noirs have a nib like the original copics & Promarkers have.
 I have coloured the pretty Magnolia stamp with a mix of Spectrum Noirs and Copics as I only had green Spectrum Noirs, & the colours I've used are -
SN's - DG2, CG2, CG1, copics - C1, C00 / Y19, Y15, Y13

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 
Crafters Companion are also sponsoring our challenge with an additional prize so dig out your buttons and come and join us :)
