A simple card with 4 looks

Today is another busy day for me but after I got home from walking my dog I decided to try a very simple card.
This is a layout that I have used for a lot of occasions and have found that it can be dressed up a little more or just left clean and simple.
When I am making a card I lay things out and play with it before I glue anything down.

Now just to let you know I am away from home with all my stamping supplies soooo I just work with what I have and I didn't have any buttons so I just punched out 3 little circles to look like buttons or brad or what ever. It will just give you the idea.

This is the clean and simple look that took all of 5 minutes to do.

Now this next one I added a thin piece acroos the bottom area to ground it.

Then I though ok how about some buttons... which I didn't have so I punched out some circles to represent the buttons.

Now I thought I would try adding the strip back on to see what it would look like.
Well.... that is what I came up with this morning. Hope you enjoyed this.
