Can You Dig It Challenge #11

WOW!  Where does the weekend go?
It's a new week and that means CAN YOU DIG IT challenge time!

Today's theme is:

Now I must admit ... buttons are one thing that I rarely use as embellishments!  I tend to shy away from the bulky embellishments because they require hand stamping at the post office which costs more ... but I had fun in making my creation for today and I will just have to deal with the post office requirements!!  
So, what do you think?

I am using 'Cultivating Cutie' from the CYDI store for today's creation and my sentiment is hand written!  The flower panel for my sentiment was cut from my button DCWV dp with the Tim Holtz floral die.  I rummaged through my 'Bucket o'Buttons' container and came up with the two red flower buttons that I used on her hat and the flower she's about to cultivate!  Coloring was done with SU watercolor pencils/blender pen as well as Prismacolor markers.

Here are a few qualifying challenges:

Have a fabulous week!
Big Hugs!
