Flower Fest for Three Challenges

I made this card using the new set, Flower Fest for three challenges. First, the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge#330 here. Second, the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge#148 here. This was to use the colors Perfect Plum, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi. And finally, the PPA#91 here, CAS-Buttons. 
I started with Wild Wasabi card stock and stamped the Solid Stripes background stamp in Wild Wasabi, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the stripes. I used Versamark and the Wild Wasabi Stampin' Emboss powder on the Wasabi flower stamp from Flower Fest. I stamped the butterfly in Perfect Plum and Wild Wasabi and trimmed it down then punched a Perfect Plum piece with the XL Butterfly punch. I stamped the flower in So Saffron, again trimming it down and then punched a So Saffron piece with the XL 5-Petal Flower punch. I used the 1/16 inch Handheld circle punch for the Wasabi center. I popped up the butterfly and flower with Stampin' dimensionals. I stamped Happy Mother's Day from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Perfect Plum and punched it out with the Word Window punch. I layered that onto a Perfect Plum piece punched with the Modern Label punch. Finally, some So Saffron buttons were threaded with slivers of Wasabi and Plum and adhered with Glue dots.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Flower Fest, Solid Stripes and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper White, Perfect Plum, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi
Inks: Versamark, Perfect Plum, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Wild Wasabi Stampin' Emboss powder, 1/16 inch Handheld punch, XL Butterfly punch, XL 5-Petal Flower punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Stampin' dimensionals, So Saffron buttons, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Stampin' dimensionals, Glue dots
