May color of the month

The colors for May are: Riding hood red, Wild wasabi, So saffron and Soft suede.
Someday I am going to figure out how to put a link in so that I can offer this challenge to anyone that may stop by. I don't sell anything, I can't give away any prizes, I just think it would be fun to throw out the challenge and let things fall where they may.

Anyway, this is my card for the color of the May month challenge/swap. I'm not happy with these buttons, but they are the only ones I have. I may hold the card and check with my rep, to see if she can "loan" me buttons. I think I'm gonna have to stock up on SU buttons. Especially in the Brights and Regals. So to the lady that gets this card, it may be a little late just because of the buttons.

The sketch for this is from another swap which is always challenging to me. We are told the sizes and shapes of the layers and we build a sketch using those layers. This, however, isn't the card that gets sent in that swap. It is the same, except the other one has red buttons.

I hope the two ladies that get these cards like them.
Take care

Such a pretty arrangement and lovely sentiment. SU! has the best buttons now. There may be something on the retired list right now, too.

This is a great card, Joyce! I love the 3 buttons. I have a ton, but rarely think to add them. They add such a fun touch. Love that sentiment!
