QKR - Add a Button

The fun challenge this week at QKR is "Add a Button."  I used this cute bunny, available here.  The digital papers are from the Carina Gardner Evening Blooms collection.  The large flower  button is from my grandmother's button collection.

The doily is from Cheery Lynn Dies.  I have so much trouble with this die.  I cut a doily with wax paper to make sure the die releases so that problem is solved.  I cannot get it to cut the center of the doily all the way through.  I must have put it through twenty times.  I kept changing he position of the metal plate, added a shim of paper, nothing worked.  I got an imprint of the center, but no cut.  

This is the first time I've tried the dot background.  I still need a lot of practice with it!
