Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #12: B is for Brads and/or Buttons!

Hi All!
Welcome to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #12: B is for Brads or Buttons!
I really like our Brads; they're pretty awesome!  I didn't feel I had to add any buttons because one of my Brads already was a button...Benjamin Button.  I think that just might be serendipity or very good planning!   ;-)

No snarky card this time.  The butterfly stamp, from Close to My Heart, was stamped twice using Walnut Stain Distress ink.  I fussy cut one image and attached it over the other one.  I  recycled some cardboard by pulling off the top layer and rubbing the same ink over it.  The wooden element is from Um Wow Studio and was covered with Walnut Stain ink.

Have fun, create, and enter Challenge #12 for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers~B is for Brads or Buttons!   We'd love to see what you come up with!
