STV's Blast from the Past Challenge - Buttons n Bows with a twist!

hi there,
hope you're enjoying the techniques I've been posting each week from the wonderful tutorials done by Gina. I know I'm havin fun (-:
Mary Anne - next week - soot!
(just kidding)

This week - easy peasy! attach a button to a bow BUT there's a twist! the button has to be "unusual", not the normal two or four hole button. Now "unusual" is whatever that means to you...I came across this button with a flower pattern that just fit my card beautifully...  IMHO (-:

Used the GKD Stamp Set "Friends are Forever", colored my flowers with Copics B45, 93, Y21, YG91,  GKD's stitched chocolate ribbon, my button stash and flat lace, Vivid's Coffee Bean, cardstock is GKD's In the Navy and some Basic Grey and Webster's.

if you havent seen Gina's toot on buttons n bows, check it out here - she has some great tips!

Really looking forward to seeing some of the gorgeous buttons you button collectors have in your collection (-:
and how they look on that bow!!
have a wonderful day,
