April is a busy birthday month for us; my dad, my mom and my sister all have birthdays this month.  This card is for my dad.  Brown is his favorite color and I just love this chevron paper and the feel it adds to the card.
 Here is a close up of the sweet image and those "faux" buttons.  I used button dies from PTI layered them on top of cardboard cut out of the same dies for dimension and then added diamond glaze to give them a nice shiny look; just like a real button.

Southern Girls Challenge--Punch above your weight (use punches and/or dies)
As You See It #80--a new technique I want to try (I had not used my diamond glaze yet, and I was dying to try it out on these "buttons"  I also used it on the dad's glasses for a glass look)
Digi Sketch challenge--Furry Friends and/or sketch
Craftin 'Desert Divas--anything goes
The Cuttin 'Divas--anything goes
Shopping Our Stash #195--No foolin': faux techniques (I used faux buttons)
Crafty Creations #286--anything goes
Fab n' Funky #253--lots of layers
Raisin Boat #32--It's a guy thing

Stamps: "Father and Daughter" digi (I have no idea where this came from; if you know please let me know!!); Verve "World's Greatest" DAD
Dies:PTI "Button #1" and "Bitty Button Stacks"; Spellbinders "Classic standard circle, large" and "Scalloped circles, large"; Verve "Flag it!" banner die
