Gallery Idol Top 10 - buttons!!

Yayyy tonight the next round of Gallery Idol went live! Our mission this round was to use buttons, concidering i use them on almost every card/layout/project i thought it would be a breeze. I wanted to go down a route i havent done before, whats further than my usual than a Cinderella night sky with starry buttons!!I sprayed the buttons with Crafters Companion glitter spray and boy is that stuff sparkly!! The navy cardstock was sprayed with it too and its so dreamy looking! The invitation/card was placed against white for the main gallery photo but for my blog i decided to make it a little more fantasy. The clock strikes midnight and there one lost slipper too.......If you like my card please vote for me before closing on Thursday night, the next round is the final 5 and i think i would probably pass out if i got that far as all the cards are stunning tonight!! lol

Thanks to all of you and a huge thanks to Paper Crafts for this fabulous opportunity!!
