Hello ~ Pinning for You

Now that I have take a couple of days off to read 3 Paulo Coelho's books,
it is catch up time for card making.
This card is made for 3 amazing challenges:-

Create a stickpin or paperclip embellishment

First I had to make the stickpin embellishment.  Guess what I used?
Two (unused) toothpicks (!!), bound together with tape.
The two flowers are actually shank buttons (buttons with protruding rings at the back).
They fitted in nicely, holding the toothpicks in place over the tape.
The leaves is a foam butterfly trimmed to look like leaves.

The scalloped circles are cut with Cuttlebug dies.
Mounted them following the sketch, using two sizes.
The 3 layered circles have a flower in each centre.
Stamped in Hello in brown to complement the colors.
