Buttons and Bows (Just the sort of stuff I don't really use much)

 Morning all. A challenging challenge for me this morning.  We would like your 'buttons and bows' over at Cardz4galz.  Buttons and bows - not something you will see me use often.  That is not to say that I haven't got tonnes of both.  Of course I have!  I just haven't got a clue what to do with them.  So, having rooted around in my craft room (I am trying to use stuff I've got lying about) I came across a fancy circle that's been in my bits box for ages. I'd cut a further circle in it to make it look like a bib and that's as far as I got.  Whoopee, I could now get rid of it - along with some of my millions of buttons and bows.

I picked a scrap of pretty pink paper and flung it all together. I used some tiny white flowers to finish off the corners as my buttons were really tiny and looked lost.  I left them to feature on the bib with a pink bow and a sentiment panel.  I'm really pleased to have used mostly scraps on this card.  Now, what do I do with all the rest of this stuff.

Please pop over to the blog and give me some inspiration.

Thanks for reading.
