Pink, Spots and My Buttons

The Challenge on Pink Elephant this week is to use

I'd made the little flowers (used one of the free templates from Simply Cards and Papercrafts magazine) with Funky Daze backing papers, inked the edges and then cut the petals deeper but then decided that the buttons I was originally going to use just did not look right. The pink was too pale and the buttons were too small.
Then I remembered I'd made a batch of fimo buttons a few weeks ago (I've not yet got round to blogging the photos I took of all of them - how bad am I?!) so used those!

They are a bit rough and ready but I like the quirkiness of them plus I'd pushed some pink and silver seed beads into the fimo before I baked them.

The flower stems are a swirly flourish set of clear acrylic stamps from Studio G. And that's it! Really simple - and I do like cards that happen that way!
