Three buttons

How about starting off with a circular base and adding 3 buttons?  That's the challenge this time on the EWV Yahoo group.  Lori chose this theme based on Wendy's project in book 3, page 33.  Wendy used an Art Part for her base but I knew my idea wouldn't fit on the small one I had in my bin.  So I found a 5" chipboard circle that would fit the flowers I wanted to use on my piece.

I stamped on the chipboard circle then distressed the edges with ink and the paint dabber.  The flowers were stamped on white cardstock with the markers and dampened so some of the ink would bleed.  Cut them out, added brown distress ink the to the edges.  Glued to the chipboard circle; orange buttons with turquoise floss form the flower centers.

'Limited Edition' is stamped on another chipboard piece and distressed with ink and the paint dabber.  The bookplate has chipboard behind it for elevation.  Aged Copper brads attach it to the base.  A few fibers and the piece is complete.
