Birthday Buddy

Hi Crafty Friends,
I made boy birthday card featuring the darling Penny Black Buddy and Duck stamp set. I was inspired by the Tuesday Throwdown Bingo Challenge (see below). I used Blue, Button, An Image.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q:  Do you like using buttons as embellishments on your cards?
A: Me? Yes, I especially love the "Dressed Up" ones that are things like unicorns, flamingos etc.
