You are my sunshine :)

Does this just NOT make you smile?!  


That single little blue bird in the autumn tree... I'm gonna say it... FREAKIN' A-DOR-A-BLE.  I love love LOVE this TAC stamp from last year :)  I've also had this jar o' harvest colored buttons staring at me for months... I couldn't take it anymore, and the autumn button tree was born.  I've been seeing trees o' buttons all over the net and finally came up with this little bebe.


Stamps:  This Girl (sentiment), Early Bird (retired)
Paper:  Ivory UltraSmooth cardstock, kraft packing paper
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo, Burnt Umber Palette
Other:  Copic markers, brown Scrapper's Floss, Glue Dots, misc. buttons


The part that took the longest on this bad boy, was tying all of the floss to the buttons... but it looks soooooo much more finished off than if the buttons had been left plain.  Glue Dots are the BEST adhesive to hold buttons onto cardstock that I have found so far... two thumbs up {insert cheesy grin here}.


I left the card pretty plain, but I really like it.  You can't really see it, but I did a little subtle sponging with brown ink on the main panel.


What do you think?
