Less is More Week 25 Recipe

Hi LIMettes

Well another week upon us (is it me or is life just whizzing by....) good thing though we get another great challenge over at Less is More!  Chrissie and Mandi have yet again given us some fantastic inspiration and yet again its only the start of the week and there are over 150 entries!  This week is recipe week and they would like us to use Buttons or Ribbon.  I've decided to use both!

So here is my little entry for this week:-

I decided to make a button flower.  I did have a button in the centre of the flower but I thought this little felt mini rose I made just softened the look of the flower slightly and I just preferred it!

 and you know me I couldn't help but add a bit of sparkle to the stem!
I then finished it off with some lovely silk ribbon at the side tied in a knot

So thats my entry off to look at some of the others entries and leave some comments!...

I also going to enter my card into these challenges:-
come and get it challenges - Make your own flowers (Sun)
lollipop crafts - July challenge - Anything Goes (31st July)
crazy challenge - 77 Ribbons

Until next time

Happy Crafting

Simple but lovely card. Very effective use of white space too. Got to learn how to make those flowers and how to utilize white spaces. =)
