Allsorts challenge week 412 - Something beginning with B

It is Brenda's turn to choose the challenge and as the header says, she has chosen ....
Something beginning with B (no, a photo of Brenda will not count)

Our sponsor this week is Tattered Lace with these two lovely prizes.




I have chosen Buttons and Blue 



A few weeks ago I decided that it was time I used some of my very old collection of buttons and I thought I would try to make some button flowers, these were my first attempt. It was a bit of a struggle at first but then I found it dead easy

I made them into a card using Honey Doo Crafts stamp - Flower Fountain.
Stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves.
Covered the actual flowers on the stamp with the button flowers, there is an odd one or two where a bit of the flower shows but this actually look like a bit of a leaf IRL.

Now listen carefully 'cos I shall say this only once "I was really  pleased with this card".
I feel I have never said that before and feel that I may never say it again.

Have a great week.

Well come on lovely lady, you need to practice the 'I like this' - because your cards are always gorgeous! I do love what you did with the buttons here (and yes I have a collection too!) The stamp you used is perfect for the flower stems... all in all it's a fabulous card!!

Hi Kath,
I agree with Christine.
You need to say that phrase more often as your cards are always so brilliant and wonderfully created.
This one is also an xcellent design and the most wonderful idea, and very clever idea too.
Love the colour and that flower fountain stamp really comes to life with the buttons.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
