Button, Button, the Outlawz Needs a Button

Happy Monday, crafters! It's a new week, and a new challenge at the Outlawz Monday Greetings, and Rick St Dennis is this week's guest sponsor. I got to play with this awesome digi image called Morning on Valhalla, featuring a favorite character of mine, Morning Goddess.
I snagged a metal art piece at my local thrift store and distressed it by sanding the edges and inking them. After coloring my image with Copics, I framed it with a paper doily before standing it up against the pole holding my sentiment. I re-colored the "O" in LOVE and framed it with a paper doily as well., adding a button to the center of the flower. I added some bunting on the base of my art, then threw some flowers at my Goddess' feet.
This year, hubby and I celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary! I know, I can't believe it either! LOL I used my Pan pastels to color up the number 40 and hung it onto my piece with a couple more buttons. It's my anniversary present for him and I hope he likes it. (After 40 years, it gets mighty difficult to figure out what to get him)
I hope you check out Rick's Shop to see all the amazing images he has to offer. And don't forget to link up your card or project, using at least one button, of course, at the Outlawz Monday Greetings challenge.
Happy Crafting!
