Our Challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is to use buttons. Our sponsor this week is Fred She Said. I chose to use their lovely Heart & Rose digi.

First I colored the heart and rose then ran it thru the dotted swiss folder. I colored another rose and cut it out and layered it on top. I cut a scalloped heart out and ran thru another embossing folder then lightly colored it with purple, green and a little metalic gold chalks. I used a MS iron gate punch for the center strip, ran thru the crimper and then stitched down the center. The white was ran thru the dotted swiss folder also. I dyed some ribbon lavender and made a bow and attached the buttons.
