The inspiration for this card came from a challenge to use buttons and/or brads. The layout was from a sketch. I had the card almost completed but had an appointment for an eye exam. After the eye exam, I was unable to see well enough through dilated eyes to complete my card and I missed the "button" challenge deadline. I did have time for the sketch challenge and a few others.
