Lelly Jelly Buttons

Here's a card I made for a very special lady...

I die cut an oval with the framelits, onto a 3-fold card....
embossed the oval shape with 2 smaller ovals 
(ask if you want to know 'how'!)
added the sentiment, some itty bitty flowers and rhinestones...
threaded some buttons onto linen thread,
and encased the threads in the 3rd layer.
This was inspired by the amazing window display at Hoop in Tenterden.
The added bonus, is the recipient can use the buttons afterwards!
The buttons were naughty ones though...
they refused to stay face forward, but still a pretty effect....
