Cute as a button

The current challenge over at Addicted to CAS is 'Circle(s)'.  And for once an idea popped straight into my head, whoopee :) Buttons are round/circular (normally) so this is what I made:
I used:

- A6 white card stock

- more of the same white card, embossed with Boofle's 'Mixed Buttons' embossing folder, slap my wrists 'cos I've had this folder for ages and this is a first outing

- a snippet of turquoise card for the backing

- snippets of turquoise and orange card to cut/emboss coloured buttons using SU's 'Sweet Buttons' Embosslit - which were then added randomly

- sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's 'Sew Lovely' stamp set, stamped using 'Morocco' Dewdrop ink pad then punched out with SU's 'Extra Large Oval'
