Top Tip Tuesday - Buttons or bows

It's time for a new challenge over at Tip Top Tuesday.  This time around it's about using Buttons or Bows.

For this make I used the great Dandelion Butterflies from Bugaboo Stamps one of the sponsors for this forthnight challenge.

And I have a little tip to share with you for this challenge!

Tip: Buttons can make fabulous centers to flowers and make them have more dimension.

The paper I used is from We R memory Keepers - Chalkboard.  I used my scallop and large circle.  I added the 2 buttons as flower center.  I left it quite CAS because I don't like sympathy cards to be to embellished...

Here's a closer look at the digi that I left black and white.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. The paper players - CAS floral challenge
  2. Simon says stamp blog - Things that fly
That's it for today.  Hope you have a great Tuesday.
