add a button. . . .

is one of the requirements for the current House of Cards challenge. 



I chose to do a clean and simple card:



This is for one of my grandsons who will be 17 years old next week.  (so hard to believe!)  The button I used is a silver one and the photo is so bad that it does not look silver here. It has been raining the entire day and the lighting is terrible.  I used the Penny Black Madison  6" paper pad to make the banners.  The sentiment and stars are from Hero Arts.  A pretty star embossing folder helped jazz this up a bit.

Did I mention that Alex is a handsome boy??



This was taken in 2012 and he was dressed as a cowboy for a Halloween party.  He is even more handsome today than he was then.  :)

Have a good day!
