Buttons and Bows

Hi all...This month sees the start of a new challenge blog Ready-Teddy-Go challenge....How exciting to have a new challenge blog to follow and play along with,I just love Bears.

For the month of August the theme is Buttons & Bows,and of course you must use a  Bear image,so out came my new Penny Black Transparent set called Eat cake,there is two really cute bears in this set....My Mother-in-law gave me her tin of all the old buttons she has collected up over the years,including buttons of old clothes that my hubby wore when he was a little boy lol..

This is what I came up with.
