Chocolate Buttons?

Yesterday I showed the handbag card I made for this months Get Funky! theme, which uses one of the lovely new papers from the newly released download collection "Rainbow Stripey Stripes".  Today I've three cards to show, all using the same download, along with the matching "Rainbow Polka Dots".that has been available for a few weeks now, and all using the chocolatey shades in the download. 
The first card uses both stripe designs, plus the Polka Dots.
Mosaic tiles are punched squares, backed with punched squares of card and inked around the edges
For the buttons I glued paper squares on to flat square buttons, then added a layer of Glossy Accents
The flower is made using Nesties dies, a button and twine
Two lengths of Stripey Stripes paper woven through slits cut with a craft knife to make the loops
Buttons made with 2 sizes punched circles (paper layers plus 2 card layers for each).  Polka Dots paper on larger size, Stripey Stripes on upper layer.  
The layers are then glued together and holes made with Cropadile. 
A layer of Glossy Accents was added to the top and brown twine knotted through the button

Three squares cut from one of the Stripey Stripes designs and mattes onto Brown Bazzill card. 
Two very narrow lengths of the other Stripey Stripes design used to add narrow borders above ad below. 
Three small 2-layer flowers (Nesties die) cut from Polka Dots paper and fixed together with black brads.
Black pen used to doodle around the edges of the squares

That's it for now, thank you for popping by, I hope you'll come again soon :)

I love the simpleness of just using brown and white. Not your usual style at all, but they are fab - and I particularly like your doodling.
