Dreams come true

I'm late, but this card is for Becky's Compose a Card #7. I broke out my new PTI black felt (so luxurious!) but had to wing the sandwich, as I snapped my C plate a couple days ago! I managed to cut out the felt circles, but it wasn't a clean cut with my improvised shims.

I used my favourite "matching thread" trick, which is to use a sliver of matching cardstock or paper to thread the buttons - in this case I used the patterned paper. Click on the photo for a close-up. It's hard to see, but I used one of the new PTI Impression plates on the patterned paper.

And here's the inside. I'm trying to dress the insides up a bit more, so this was fun:
Stamps: Birthday Basics, Text Style II (PTI), Pop Fashion (Pink Paislee)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Spring Rain (PTI), patterned paper (K&Company)
Ink: Basic Black, Bashful Blue (SU)
Accessories: Black felt, Polka Dot Basics II Impression Plate, Lg scalloped border die (PTI), corner rounder punch (EK Success), buttons (Making Memories), Cuttlebug (Provocraft), circle, scalloped circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
