LEJ Designs Challenge 41 - Button Mania

Here is my DT card for LEJ Designs challenge #41 with the theme of 'Button Mania'.  This card  features  a   digi from LEJ Designs called 'Summer Sun Ellen' . I picked her because it is February and the weather is blustery I wanted to do a card that was far removed from my reality:O), so  I created a beach card.

  9. Love the beach card, Glenda. I'm ready for weather a bit warmer. If I was sitting on the beach closest to my home today, I'd be exactly the shade of frosty blue you used. :-D Love the design.

  10. This is such a cute card! And I am so ready for some beach time. I'd just be happy with the sun. LOL! Well, we do have sun today but a high of 15 degrees. Not very beach-like weather. You could also enter this in the Cuttlebug Spot. Their theme is buttons too. Have a great day!
