Two Are Better!

This is just a fun friendship type card I made and had a lot of fun with, using the Feb. release stamps. I stamped Party Pig, Party Cow, and Better Than One sentiment onto Manga drawing pad by Canson, using Tsukeneko Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the images with Copics (see photo below for a list of colors).
I made the buttons with Sculpey (so fun!) distressed some of the edges with a metal ruler (works best for me) and used a Spellbinders Curved Rectangle die for the sentiment and Spellbinders Flower Creations die for the flowers inside the card. I got them at one of my fav. stores, Scrappin' Great Deals. If you haven't ever checked them out, do so. They really do have a ton of stock and their sales are fabulous! DP is Basic Grey. Raffia from Michael's.
Here is a look at the inside:
