Playing with Overlays

I am finally getting a chance to play with one of the overlay sheets by Hambly Studio.  The one that I used on this card is called Orange Mod Circles. The base of this card is Neenah Supersmooth Ivory.  I decided to change my format a little.  The Neenah piece is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I then cute a piece of the Treasures Grass to 5 x 7 1/2 and folded that in half to make the part of the card that opens.   I cut a flower out of the overlay to back the Treasures  Butternut flower and then used  a piece of it as accent on the  Basis Brown also. The flower and sentiment is Treasures Butternut.  I used a brown cat eye stamp pad to highlight the edge of the Ivory base.

One thing to note.  I was on Pinterest the other day and they had a bracelet made of buttons.  I loved the way they put the ends of the twine through the button and then formed a knot.  I thought this would be perfect for attaching a button to a card.  By the way the nice Natural Jute  Twine also came from Paper Temptress.
