Back to School - Fall Fun

My grandkids live out of state and start the school year much earlier than here in Michigan.
I know FALL is right around the corner, but I'm not rushing summer gone just yet.

 Here is a cute little card I made for my grandkids to give to their new teachers. They are all the same, with slight variations. I think they are adorable using the technique I learned last year from PTI using a butterfly die. You can really use just about any die that works with your imagination!

On this one I used HALF of the die cut to the left. The design has a white background.

On this one I used HALF of the die cut to the right...and the design is on a vanilla background.
Both are cute to me... what do YOU think?

Cute as a Button {PP207}

Today I have just a short post to play along with "The Paper Players" challenge {PP207} theme... "Cute as a Button".
Here is a card I made last weekend trying to use up some of the piles of scraps I had laying on my craft table!  I said I was not getting one thing out until I used up what was right in front of me.
Here's one of my cards that will work for the challenge. 
My buttons are paper buttons, but they looked cute as flower centers of Crisp Cantaloupe DSP against the Baked Brown Sugar CS. It is really hard to see from this photo, but if you zoom in,  I used the large polka dot embossing folder [love] on the black strip of card stock to go with the many circles.
