Got Buttons?

The challenge over at Speedy the Cat's Friends #60 is to use a button/buttons on your card. I made my own button for this card using cool caribbean card stock and glossy accents. I used a scrap of wild asparagus polka dot dp along with chocolate chip, kraft, and cool caribbean card stock. The 2 smaller flowers were colored with Copic markers to match, while the largest blue flower was used as is. The background was embossed with a CB ef, and the sentiment is from MFP's thankful mums & pumpkins, stamped with chocolate chip ink and layered with 2 SU! punched pieces. For the final touch I added some bakers twine.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great Wednesday!
