MMSC54 and Crafty secrets

Priscilla's midnight madness challenge sketch this week called for lots of buttons which I don't have but the strips of gems seem to work. I used a pretty Cotton scrap from
Crafty Secrets for the image, trimmed in zig zag copper peel off borders and a satin butterfly and prima rose over some ribbon. cuttlebug background on gold mirror card.

Great job with the sketch this week. Thanks for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Wow, this is beautiful, love the flower and butterfly embellishments. How can you not have buttons? I have my Mom's button box, I used to play with it as a child.
