Button Boutique #2 ~ Shamrocks!


Hi there! It's time again for my Button Boutique projects at DeNami Design. For this month's feature I thought I would dig into my emerald green buttons and think about St. Patrick's Day.



 I've taken these splendid DeNami products and turned them into this sweet little project!




 I came across this cute wooden shadow box frame at Joanns for the mere sum of one dollar. I couldn't pass that bargain up and had sparkings of an idea as I left the store.



The new solid leaf sprig is fast becoming a favorite of mine and I think it looks just perfect with the curly shamrock

Next I transformed this idea into a card leaving off the shamrock stamp and focusing completely on a large button shamrock. The solid leaf sprig made the perfect stem!


Wouldn't this make a sweet gift with this little message written inside...

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
~Irish Blessing



I hope I've inspired you to dig into your buttons today. No emerald green buttons ~ hop on over to the  DeNami store and start shopping!! ~Lisa
