Elemental Doodles' August Challenge

Here is a little bit different for you....does it make you go hmmmm? My first challenge for Elemental Doodles is to use one solid cardstock, 2 pieces designer paper, 1 button and 1 flower. The flower is what made me pause, I didn't want to just stick any old flower on so I made my own. I took 5 hearts and crumbled them all up and then used the Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole through them all. I attached them with a brad and then fanned out the hearts, I then used a glue dot to add the pearl on top. I saw this technique on Nicole Heady's blog ages ago and tucked it away for future use. :) So what do you think, want to try the challenge? Let me know if you do. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
