2nd card for Less is More

I have only ever used a button once on a card, but I do have a jar full of them from items of clothing which have been thrown away. Copied from my mother, as after the war they learnt to be thrifty!
I made these flowers by twisting each petal of ribbon and sticking them to a circle of card, finished off with a button for the center. The stems and leaves I drew in with promarkers.
The sentiment is computer generated.
My second entry to Less is More this week, I hope you like....................The first time I have tried flowers like this, and I am pleased with the result!


I've done a tutorial on how to make these flowers. It can be found HERE
