Pretty in Pink Button Buddies

I've been stamping away in my little room, using things that will no longer be available after June 3rd.  These two cards use the Button Buddies stamp set as well as the buttons, both of which are, sadly, leaving us. Actually, we will still have buttons, but not in this design. No more flower shapes. This first card is a more formal and symmetrical design, but I enjoyed making it.

 The pig card is just plain fun. I don't know if you see it as I intended, but there are mud splatters outside his puddle. The stamp to achieve the spattered effect was from the Welcome "issue" of My Paper Pumpkin. Anyone who subscribes will receive the same first set before resuming the subscription order.
I've used Pretty in Pink, which is one of the colors leaving our color collection, along with Rose Red for the first card. I mixed it with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede on the second card. A scallop circle punch and an edgelit finished it off.

Cute cards! Great way to use up retiring products and showcasing the retiring stamps. I've been doing the same! :)
