5 Circles, 3 Squares and just 1 Flower....

.......was the recipe for last Tuesday's DCM Little Extra, which I finally got round to doing yesterday - OK so it's a bit later than usual but I've been away and Saffa's Dare - which had to be my priority when I got back, was really HARD!

o anyway, here's my "Thank You" card for my lovely Aunt and Uncle for making our Easter in Northumberland so wonderful (photos coming soo, I promise....)

I finally got to open my lovely new Crate "Twirl" papers for the first time - though in the end I only used one of the patterned sides - I wanted to get more of the gorgeous pattens into this one but this way just looked so much better.
5 circles: 3 buttons from my stash, a aper circle and a round brad
3 squares: lots of inking with various of my favourite Cat's Eye chalk inks
1 flower: cut into three sections and layered under the tag

The ribbon is Maya Road, I think. I used wire to attach it under the buttons and then to attach the whole button/ribbon thing to the squares.
I'm really chuffed with this one, hope you like it too :-)
