Button Flowers

Good morning everyone....it's Friday....yeaaaaaa!!! I don't have anything special planned for today so maybe I can get outside and clean out a few flower beds. The temp was in the 80's yesterday and boy, was it beautiful outside!!! My friend came over the other day and took some pics of my blooming iris, daffodils, and pansies....don't ya just love spring flowers!!! Talk about spring flowers....how about button flowers??
I made this card yesterday for the Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoast. The challenge was to use buttons on our project...my card features Stamps from Papertrey Inks Flower Fusion set....very CAS and so much fun!!! The stems and leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzaz and I used Pool Party, Pretty in Pink, and so saffron for the flowers.
Recipe:
Stamps: PTI's Flower Fusion
Paper: Hawaiian Shores, White
Ink: Pear Pizzaz, Pool Party, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron
Accessories: Buttons, Twine, Floss

Thanks for stopping by...have a great Friday!!!!
