Button Brooch

I saw and was inspired by a button brooch featured on Button Floozies about a year ago. Can not find the post again but if you now it was you thank you for the inspiration and leave a comment here so everyone else knows who it was.
I added a small crochet flower as the base of my brooch and the large pink button is vintage. My Mum gave it to me years ago along with a box of other buttons.
The wire was the tricky bit but once it was all together it looked really good.
I am going to try some other colour combinations next.
