Birthday Greetings!




One of my really good friends had a birthday this month...and this is what I created for her to freshen up her wall of pictures.  It's a monogram of her surname....framed!


Where did I get all these buttons? 
Why, my DH's and boys' dress shirts. When they wear out or get stained, be sure to clip and save those buttons!  Here I used UHU Twist & Glue to adhere the buttons right onto the glass. This acid free, quick drying glue is super strong and tries clear.  If you have any wobbles, use some nail polish remover to quickly wipe away  stray marks. 





And...why not have a matching card.  We're a craft set, don't you know!  Here I created a long, tall card...with the same matching paper:  Viva La France.
Sentiment from Pink by Design: My Favorite Thing.




Who wouldn't like this glitz and glam!
Happy Birthday Adrienne!
