A Buttoned Wreath

Day 296 at 365 cards - Pam aked for a wreath, but we were not allowed to stamp a wreath or use pp with wreaths. the whole idea was DIY kind of challenge...

I never had a real wreath, and never hanged one on my door. I made this buttoned wreath as a birthday card for my mom, she'll be 76 in 12 days!

I used pp from indian summer of Basic Greay and stamped it with flourish stamp. for the wreath I cut a golden ks in the O shape and covered it with fabric leaves and lots of lots of lots of buttons (I love those flower shaped ones. got myself lots of them, ih many colors). the lace is brown in real light, only in the photo it looks black... on top of the lace I adhered the pale blue flower, added the sentimen (a new one I just got as my rak on Irit Shalom's #1 royal challenge) and the two roses on a riboon in the corner.

and it goes for the folowing challenges:
