After reading on the Simplicity blog about her adventures with buttons, I came across this card Rose-Marie created. Sorry about the washed out image, in person the colours are much nicer.
The background was stamped with Rosewood French Script and run through the CB Swirls folder. The Rosewood Sunflower Script was stamped, the image coloured as desired and the background distressed. Centre the piece of ribbon, layer onto green cardstock base and add the stamped sunflower image as shown. Dig into that glorious button collection to find appropriate size button for sunflower centres. Add more buttons to the ribbon if desired.
