Perfect Sentiments Challenge 16: Missing A Button

Welcome back scrappers & crafters. It's Wednesday so you know what that means...it's time again for another fab challenge with The Perfect Sentiment Challenge Blog.

This week the theme is to create a card with a "missing you" sentiment (visible on the front of the card) and the twist is to use a button or buttons on your creation.

Here is my take on this weeks challenge...
Now for me this is a pretty simple and clean card. Normally I like to really add layers/embellis etc but I wanted the sentiment of "missing you" to really stand out.
I thought it would be fun to use this crossword paper from the Kaiser Craft Black & White Timeless collection and hand write my sentiment. 
For a little accent I used some checked B&W ribbon on the bottom of the card. Here's a closer look at the buttons I used.....
These buttons are from my scrappy stash...just some randoms I've picked up along the way. I think the white one is kinda funky : )
To carry the look from the front to the inside I used more of the B&W ribbon and Charcoal twine from The Twinery. Here's a closer look...
And one last look at my card for this challenge....

Now for some amazing inspiration from my fellow DT members....


We don't have a sponsor for this week...this challenge is just for fun. Don't forget we will still have the Perfect 3 which comes with a badge you can proudly display on your blog. Check out all the details surrounding this weeks challenge over at the Perfect Sentiment Challenge Blog.
