The buttons and circles of DP on the right are just perfect.

Great job on this flower round!!!

Truly a vision! Love the script Dp and how you used it with the ribbon and doily. It looks like you sponged the edges of it? Sooo pretty!! Your coloring of the image is perfection (especially the ground!) and the side buttons you made with the brads is so great! Your extra touches on the inside put it over the top!!
Hugs to you and I'm so glad that you had fun with the kit!!
