Cards. Three Muses. Vintage Button Card Tag

This is my entry for this week's challenge of "cards" at the Three Muses.
"Cards" drew me to the vintage button cards that I have posted on the walls of my studio. I scanned some into the computer and used a copy of one of them to make this tag.

Vintage button card facsimile, vintage mother of pearl buttons, stamped, stitched, embellished.

See the back, looks just like a vintage button card :)

 The original card.
Also, if you scroll down, or go to this link, you will see another tag that I created using the same approach for Mixed Media Monday's challenge of Marie Antoinette.


  1. Gosh this is lovely.
    Gorgeous work.

  2. What beautiful use of your vintage button cards, and you can still use them again! I love the idea of the tags, and the addition of the sprig of green at the bottom is the perfect touch. Thank you for sharing your talent .... and thank you, Sharon, for your kind words in response to the Museflash!

  3. Sharon what beautifully inspired cards, so scrumptious and original. You have such a talent for thinking outside the box. Thank you also for your lovely comments about the Muses.

  4. Beautiful and very creative.

  5. What a fabulous presentation for the card theme, so beautifully created. A unique idea--I love it. Thank you for visiting my blog. I have joined your followers list and look forward to returning as I love the things I have seen here. I invite you to join me as well. Hugs, Gayle (in Canada)

  6. Nicely done!

    I've been pondering how to incorporate pearl buttons (2 big jars from the mississippi river, back in the day) into some book work.


  7. Your vintage button cards are exquisite. They are "a first" for me. I have seen all types of cards in the creative world but never button cards and now I think I am in love!! What a brilliant idea and what beautiful artwork. Superb.

  8. Oooh, vintage and buttons - two of my passions!
    Beautiful, beautiful tag.
