Buttons and Bows

Hi everyone,

The last 2 weeks have been really busy, with the school holidays, as well I've had 2 unwell little  granddaughter's, who are now better and back at creche. We took our grandson and his Mum to Melbourne, we went on the Tourist Trams as Jamie loves any sort of transport, cars, trucks & racing cars.   Jamie's Wish with the Starlight Foundation at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne was to meet Michael Schumacher! His wish was fulfilled and Jamie with his parents were very lucky to meet Michael a few years ago when he came over for the Melbourne Grand Prix the year before he retired from Formula 1 racing, it was such a thrill for Jamie.

Anyway enough of my family (I love them all to bits) lol.. 
Here is a card that I am going to enter into Midweek Magnolias Challenge, this has my favourite Tilda on it,

"Tilda with Hawaii Flower"

I have made flowers for this card with cheese cloth which was cut with Spellbinders Rose Creations dies, I put Gesso on the cheese cloth, left it to dry while I cut out more of the rose shapes in Pink sparkling net, layered them together with some mini heart brads then I had the fun of scrunching them up into a flower shape - it was fun, I haven't done that before, its a first!
I think they look quite nice on the card..
