Challenge 20 "Button Down the Hatches" with KL SNS

Hey, it's . . . Saturday!! And Joanna is our hostess for this week!!
Joanna says -- Remember the old phrase, "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb?" So . . . she wants us to "Button Down The Hatches 'cuz Winter is not quite done yet."
Your challenge is to use buttons on your card. Anywhere!
Although you are welcome to use ANY stamps that you own, we also want to remind you that KL Stampin N' Scrappin carries a variety of stamps from several fabulous stamp companies (BasicGrey, C.C. Designs, High Hopes, Stampavie, DRS and some Magnolias).
Go check out the new store front and see the NEW stamps available inside.

So, using this challenge I created one of my March birthday cards. I seem to know a lot of people who have birthdays in March including my husband, mother and son,
so believe me -- it is a busy time of year!!
I used one of the new High Hopes stamps created by Dustin Pike called Cherry Chip Chimp, colored with Copics, layered on the largest standard circle nestabilities dies and one of the label three dies. Then the DP in the background is Lime Rickey and JuneBug (since I was going for some bright colors). I really think this made a fun card with the bright cheery colors! :)

I continued the same pattern on the inside with matching pieces and couldn't resist making my own cherry accent with a couple of dark pink buttons and a piece of hemp cording colored dark green to look like a stem. The sentiment is Cherry on Top that matches the Chimp image from the front and a Happy Birthday sentiment from a Studio G set.

As always, you are free to combine your KL SNS challenge card with any other challenges. Don't forget ... your deadline is Friday, March 12th at 12 midnight EST. There will be blinky awards for the Top 3 best cards! We hope you can join us for some fun. Need more inspiration?!

Hope you can join us for a little Stampin' or Scrappin'! :)
P.S. -- Thanks to Jacilynn, I see my card also qualifies for a couple of other challenges this week:
Cupcake Craft Challenge
Double Dutch Challenge
