I hope you enjoy this page, I had a lot of fun making it! It was challenging with using the buttons as I don't usually use them. Ribbon is my go to embellishment, so this challenge was good since it took me out of my comfort zone. We all need to get out of that comfort zone once in awhile :)

I ended up using the button as a button on Frank's coat. I think it turned out super cute!

I also really love how it looks like they are both pointing to the picture.

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time :)
