Back today with another Quick Makes card.  
This is featured in this month's Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine but...
stood the other way up!  Actually it sort of works! 
Truly a simple design but utilising the patterned paper, lots of layers and a button - I rarely use buttons which may account for why I seem to have about twenty jars of them.. any ideas for using lots of buttons please!
Don't forget you can still leave a comment on this post to be in with a chance of winning a new set of
Bella will pick out a winner tomorrow..I keep telling her, she seems to understand!
Have a lovely Friday.

Good morning again,
Another fab quicky card. These quick and easy cards would be so useful to have ready in a cards box for emergencies or bundled up and wrapped in pretty ribbon as a gift.
Have a good day. Linda

Love your backing papers Christine. So delicate. Your jars of buttons would look nice on my craft shelf lol. I like to use them but have not managed to build my own stash yet.

Another fab quickie card. The backing paper is gorgeous, can you let us know what it is please? I never think to use buttons either. I bought some clear ones to colour with pro markers or alcohol inks and haven't even used those! xx

Gorgeous card Christine, just love the colours you've used. I too don't use buttons enough and I have loads!

This is a beautiful card Christine, love the colours and the button looks good. When I suffer from button overload I make bracelets with them for my Grandaughter - she says they are fashionable at the moment.....or you could give little packs away as candy maybe?

Hello Christine. I haven't used buttons much to be honest probably as I have not got a stash of them. I think the nicer bigger ones are quite expensive so thought I would try and recycle buttons from old clothes before sending them for rags. I love the card and the backing papers - all your papers are beautiful - like others have mentioned earlier, where do you get them from?
