Dilly Beans-Buttons Challenge!

I'm on a roll today after a dry week.  This is my second post so please scroll down for the monthy Simply Steampunk Challenge.

Button, button, who's got the button?  Dilly Beans, that's who!  Our Friday Weekly Challenge calls for Buttons and the team has outdone themselves.  I was really excited for this one because I sort of hoard buttons and had the perfect embossing folder from Sizzix to boot.  The adorable #553 Penny had ther perfeect hair for the cool vintage buttons by Jenni Bowlin, to which I added flower ones from Making Memories.  The rest of her hair and dress is paper pieced.  All DP is from the DCWV All About Girls mat stack.  Scattered more buttons about and added my sentiment with pastel Alpha Beads and I was done.  WooHoo!  Now it's your turn.  Please keep in mind that we require a Dilly Beans image for our challenges.  There are a couple of specials going on there so it's worth a look.

Although I rarely submit a non LOC card at Left of Center, I'm also entering this for the #13 Girly theme, the Stampin' With the Dragon Buttons and Bows, 613 Ave Create Anything Goes and the DL Art September Linky Party.
