FMS147 - flowers

Hi everyone! Here is my take on this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.

Flower stamp is from the old Wild for You set from the former Angel Company. I used red and green Memento markers to color the stamp and then huffed on it.

I picked up a package of clear buttons from Impress the last time I was in the store. I stamped the flower head, cut it out using a circle punch and then used some glossy accents to adhere the clear button. I didn't punch the holes out and tie a bow because it would have messed up the flower. Green bakers twine was also picked up at Impress.

Tiny pearls added to the center of the flowers and the green cardstock is from Bazzill.

I was tempted to add a sentiment onto this, but resisted. Glad I did. ;-)

Also adding this card to the anything goes challenge over at SSS. 
Also adding this to The Paper Players #207 which is add a button. 

Thanks for stopping by!
