The Button Flower is What It's All About.

   I don't know how I feel about this card. It is very plain except for the wreath and even that is a little plain. But what I do love is the Button Flower on the wreath. To me that is the focal point - what this card is all about! And truth be told I made the Button Flower first, then made the wreath to hold the flower, then made the door to hang the wreath! That is certainly not the way I usually design a card/project!

  These new Big Designer Buttons add such a pow to projects! And the centers are large enough to hold embellishments such as rhinestones or brads or in this case, pearls! Add a few "leaves" and a button becomes a flower!

  I added the strip of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding at the bottom of the "door" to represent the kick stop.  Also, visually it balances the Cherry Cobbler button. And that is about it for this card. Hope you like it!
