Button Love - Cute as a Button DT

Hi thanks for popping back.... For my second post today, I am delighted to share with you my first card as part of the very first Design Team for the "Cute As A Button Challenge Blog". All the DT's have been asked to use the same image on this first challenge and she is the gorgeous "Button Love". For me, I went a little over board with embellishments lol and had great fun....

I mounted the backing paper and the image onto Kraft Card and cut out a teardrop circle in contrasting pink paper which I mounted on to the backing paper before sticking the image on top.....I then diecut the flowers and the butterflies using contrasting buttons to finish....

For the inside, I used a strip of the paper I used for the flowers and used a butterfly embossing punch once. I mounted it on to a layer of Kraft Card and inserted it to the inside of the card...
