Challenge : Spring




The challenge of the European Street Team for this week is from palepink and is called "Spring".

Here where I live, the winter aconite is number two every February: snowdrops poke their little heads through the snow a week earlier. But with their intense yellow optimism, the winter aconites make the picture complete; they are the true forbodes of spring. I really love that bright yellow and green flower !

Inspired by this lovely flower, I made a brooch of one large vintage green button in the middle with lots of small yellow buttons sewn around it (with yellow embroidery floss). Everything is topped off with one lime green shank button and a green synthetic velvety fabric leaf.
