Elegant Hello

Happy Sunday night! I'm still having fun with my new PTI stuff (mostly because I really like all the new stuff I got, but also because I only have access to a limited amount my stamping stash!). Here is another card I made today during some free time I had in the morning before the rest of my house woke up. I love the quiet of the mornings on the weekend. It's part of the reason that I get up early even on the days when I don't have to get up.
I made a pattern with one of the images from the Damask Designs set. I thought the buttons would give some division to the card, sort of like using a different PP. What do you think? I also decided not to put any kind of twine or thread in the button holes, instead turning it so that the holes mimic'd the background I made. Just thought this would add a little interest without adding another layer of paper.
I am really loving the pink and green combo. Since I am limited to the amount of stamping stuff I have, I must say that these are 2 great colors to be using over and over, especially given this time of the year.
Well, I'm off to finish the rest of my night and get to bed. There's {BIG} snow in the forecast for tomorrow. Soooo big that they cancelled school for tomorrow already ;) Crazy, if you ask me. I'm a bit torn... I definitely do not want snow. {Where is the spring time already!???}, but, it will definitely bother me if the kids are off and this blizzard turns out to be a big dud. Actually, who am I kidding - I hope the blizzard is a big dud... then I won't have such a horrible commute into work tomorrow. LOL.
