Button Dots Card - Blue with Brown

Blue and brown dots. Faux buttons. Embroidery floss.

I drew the 1/2" dots with Copic multiliner, using my plastic circles template, and added some dots and lines for the three light blue "buttons." The dots, the lines under the sentiment, and the embroidery floss are all colored with B41, B45, and YR14 Copic marker. The floss is an "off brand," not my favorite DMC, so it looks a bit dull and rough, which actually works well on this card.

The white cardstock is Neenah, and the blue is Papertrey Ink blueberry sky, including the 3/4" faux button at the top. The sentiment "Thinking of you" is computer-printed with "Lucida Handwriting" font.
