                <a href="#" class="button">SCSS Button</a>

<p class="note">I just discovered the beautiful 3d button created by <a href="">Dan Cederholm</a> and quickly wanted to convert it into a Sass mixin that can be used throughout my current project. As a simple addition I removed the dependency on the  span wrapper tag he decided to use.</p>
