Cute as a button

Happy Glee Day my friends!

I've got to get to work early again today so I'm just going to dive right into my card... Tiddly Inks is celebrating it's birthday and today is the start of a customer Party Puzzler blog hop that I am playing along in to help celebrate the big occasion. It's a whole big to-do so be sure to read up on the different ways that you can win by reading all of the info here.
Christy has so many cutie digi stamps in her store but I am partial to her adorable little pixies. :)
I actually used her new Rainbow Dreams pixie for this card... minus the rainbow... LOL! Instead I thought it would be fun to have her peeking out from behind the buttons on that cool, vintage looking button card stamp. I then kept the sewing theme going with the rest of the embellishments on my card as well, with stick pins, faux stitching, twine and I even made my own fake spool of thread.

So happy birthday Tiddly Inks! Here's to many more cuties joining the fun in the year to come. :)
