Diamante & Pearl Wedding Invitation

I used flat cream card for the base and embossed a piece of cream pearl for the lower half of the card. Then stamped the words with versamark ink and embossed using Stampin' up's gold embossing powder. Added chocolate ribbon and a fancy button to finish. I have seen some gorgeous pearl and diamante buttons that would finish this off better, but haven't got any in my craft stash......... yet.

After a very long time searching the net, I eventually found a company in the UK that sells these beautiful buttons, my order arrived this morning .
So after yet another trip to the doctors and even more meds prescribed to make me rattle, I came home and changed the old button for a new one.
I think it improves the card no end.
These are flat back buttons so there are no shanks to cut off and they are just so beautiful.
They are even more sparkly in reality.
I love them!!!
The buttons are from a company in Newcastle Under lyme called
The handcrafted card company ltd.
