A Button and A Bow

This card was made for Linda's Blast from the Past Challenge over at Stamp TV. She challenged us to attach a button to a bow BUT there's a twist! The button has to be "unusual", not the normal two or four hole button. The hardest part of this challenge was to decide which button to use. ....I have sooooo many. I started with another button but after I colored my image with pencils I changed to this lovely green button in my collection ...this one has flowers imprinted around the center. If you enlarge the photo, you may see it better. I used the sketch from Card Patterns which by the way is being sponsored by Gina K Designs this week.
