Pom Poms - SPRING is Coming!

Today's post was inspired by Gretchen Barron's card using the new Big Springtime Vintage buttons with the new Pom Pom trim. So cute! I just wanted to give it a try. Here is my card.
The card itself needs little explanation and went together pretty easy. I started with Natural White CS, and layered with some scrap olive DSP.
I stamped the flower leaves from the "Sweethearts" set in old olive ink on W.W. CS. I stamped a few more stems in old olive and added a few small flowers from other sets inked in tangerine tango and melon mambo. The little butterfly is from the SAB set "So Happy For You"  stamped in tangerine tango. I matted this W.W. piece on pumpkin pie CS mat.
I pulled a center thread of some pear pizzazz seam binding and gathered it to give it a scrunchy look and  wrapped it around the tangerine mat. I stamped the 'for you' from "Elements of Style" in melon mambo on W.W. and punched it out with a 3/4" circle. I punched a second 1" circle in melon mambo and glued the two together and then popped up on the seam binding with a pop dot.

Then I took a crumb cake Big Button and punched an orange circle from the Sweet Pea DSP {retired}and glued to the center with a glue dot. Then I wrapped the outer edge in sticky strip and wrapped a second time with the melon mambo pom pom trim. Aren't these pom pom flowers just so cute? I just loved how cute the pom poms look wrapped around the Big Buttons!! I attached with a large glue dot.

The inside is finished off with touches of DSP and colors from the front and I added a few photo corners punched in melon mambo.

Well that's it! Thanks Gretchen for the cute idea for using the pom pom trim on Vintage Big buttons.

This card is so adorable, I love it.
The itsy pom-pom's wrapped around the big button to form the flower is sweet and I LOVE the stamped leaves in polka dot (how did I miss that one)! Your "pulled" seam binding also looks "FAB".
Great job.
