3-D Flower for the Wild Card Challenge

I wasn't sure what I was going to do for the JUGS Wild Card Challenge (#69), which was to create a 3-D Flower.  I have a rose die-cut, but I'm still trying to figure it out. J  So here is what I came up with.

Closed up of the flower.
I stamped the flower on the background, and on three different shades of blue.  Fussy cut the flowers and put a button in the center of each flower, and tied it together with black twine.  I was originally going to use Yellow Stickles for the center of the flowers.  Then I remember I just bought a big bag of buttons last week.  The bag contains a variety of buttons, but no two are alike so we have 3 different colors for the center of the flowers.  I'm glad I went with the buttons.
