Buttons Anyone?

Hello, thank you for dropping by! Today I have a card to share with you that I've made for Card Crafter's Circle.  The challenge this week is to use BUTTONS! I love buttons and use them whenever I can.  I decided to try something different and when I saw this image from Bugaboo Stamps I thought it would be perfect for button flowers!
I printed off the image and then used some green and blue ink from Windflower to sponge it with and then I went to work pairing up buttons with each flower.  I sewed them on with yellow embroidery thread that I had in my stash of things. Here's a close up of the buttons I used.

After this I rounded the corners and matted it on some cardstock left over from making my card base and rounded those corners to.  Then I realized that I had forgotton to look for some patterned paper to go with.....thankfully I found some from DCWV that was perfect!  Then since I liked the rounded corners so much I continued to do the rest of the card that way.  Before I put the layers together I added some strips of new green ribbon from Offray I found. It still needed something more after I was done so I popped up the corner of the image and added a bow.
Now it's time for you to show use your buttons, and I don't mean belly buttons! We'd love for you to share with us your button talent at Card Crafter's Circle! Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps.
