Happy Birthday (Dutch Dare Challenge :) )

Hey Hey Hey..today is thursday..it is time for the challenge :) This week challenge is totally easy. what you need is dig out all those unused buttons under your shelves and paste it on the card...it all about Buttons! you can paste as many buttons as you wish :) pick the buttons from your hubby clothes also allowed...lol. so long you dont sue me for this :P. So for today card i have decided to use 3 buttons only :) i have limited white colour buttons so i have to use it wisely. I Love how my card turn out..never thought i will fall in love with kraft paper..especially this shade (remember i mentioned that kraft paper has 2 shade-dark and light..i love the light colour one) so i have to make sure i buy the correct one :)

Would love to enter this card for below challenges :
Paper Play Challenge- Stamp it up
Penny Black Allsort- FLOWERS
Anything goes-butterflies
Another things to share :)
my husband is having orchird fever..less than 5 days our mini garden occupied more than 4 "adult" orchird and more than 28 "baby orchid". He is in "high" fever after watch youtube all about orchid!
So one of it is this yellow orchird.it is called dancing ladies  ( i choosed this ). why it is called dancing ladies? if you see closely..the wide petals is look like gown and the dark red dotted is the "lady" body.

This one they called it "Fortune" orchid..i dont know why this one called fortune.it doesnt looks like a dollar bill to me :P..or gold..got to find out. as i know all the orchid name has a meaning or represent something :).
Ps: hubby choosed this orchird

This one no need to say you will know who picked this :P...yay..it is me!
It is hard to get an orchid with this shade of pink. Normally it is always violet,blue,orange,green and yellow. So once i see this beauty..i told my husband i want this! :)

This..is soo bright orange..something that really unsuall compare to other orchird that come in soft colour.

and here are the babies! no need to count..there are 28 pots here :) with hope all can grow healthy. it takes a lot of patience and passion to make this beauty grows well. this fussy beauty request so many things like dont like direct sunlight,doesnt like heat, must spritz water every now and then--depend on the colour of the leaves (so have to check almost all the time), and i heard will have to wait 3 years to become adult :P.

So here is my "mini" garden

thanks for stopping by

OMGoodness, wow he DOES have orchid fever! But I always think its good for a man to have a hobby, eases the conscience a little bit when we indulge our own. lol
I like that stamp you used, very elegant!

Beautiful card Yenni! Oh my goodness - I love everything about it!

And your orchids are just amazing! I have an orchid but it won't flower - just has leaves - I have no idea why it won't flower. What a beautiful sight to look at out on your balcony each day!
