Beautiful buttons

Good evening yall. I made a few cards again last night--I've really been on a roll this week! I used my new bottle of buttons last night (I think I told yall about them--I bought an old bottle of buttons from Bayou Crafters last week).

This is the first one I made. The zig zag stitch at the bottom is a Cuttlebug embossing border and the flower stems are from SU's Border Builders. I just couldn't stop with one.

I got the idea for this topiary from PaperTrey Ink's new Button Bits stamp set. I was trying to save myself $24, so I improvised with a pot from another set (SU) and a narrow trunk drawn in with a marker. Thanks for checking out my creations!
