Button, Button, Who's Got the Button?

I do!  And it's on my new card I made for the Squigglefly Challenge this week.  That's right, this week's challenge is to use buttons on your project.  I made a card using one of Squigglefly's January release digi-images, called Polar Bears.
I colored the image with Copics, framed it and the sentiment with black carsdstock, and set them both off with some wild patterned paper.  I love this paper, but I won't do much more with it, as I have taken a vow of poverty (as far as crafting goes).  So this card was made with leftovers from my stash.
Can you see my buttons?  They are tiny black ones, and I used them in the centers of the small patterns on my background paper.
The sentiment was snagged off of http://www.quotegarden.com/ and printed up from Word.  I think this would make a nice get well card for a guy---what do you think?
Have you participated in a Squigglefly Challenge yet?  All you need is a Squigglefly image and meet the challenge guidelines found HERE.  If you don't already have your own images, check out the FREEBIES.
Happy Crafting!
