Pinspired Polka Dots

Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABCs & Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum

I have a box of buttons that I love to look at, touch and admire. I bought them to adorn cards, to share their beauty with my card recipients, but they've languished in their box, mine the only eyes to light upon them. I seem to have passed my love of buttons on to the next generation and the squeals of delight as I caught my little one tossing my cherished buttons in the air and letting them run through her hands has encouraged me to share and post my buttons (only a few though!). 
The Lawnscaping Challenge #70 is to use polka dots and I've taken my colour scheme from the Pinspired Challenge #21.  I've distressed the polka-dot patterned paper and card stock with Antique Linen distress ink and coloured with pink Promarkers and some stickles.
