TUIC Challenges - Vintage Summer

For our blog group's, Tangled Up In Creativity, second challenge Rebekka of  A Diamond in the Rough (check out her beautiful cards, here) wanted us to make a card with a vintage summer theme.  The image is actually cut out from Daisy D's Back to School scrapbook paper collection.  The sentiment is by Inkadinkado.  I used craft and blue cardstock from Michael's.  I made the flower yoyo (my new addiction) and used one of Jenni Bowlin's vintage buttons for the center.  The fiber is a crocheted chain, I'm trying to teach myself how to crochet.  It is a bit of a challenge since I am left-handed.  All the talented people who can crochet I know are right-handed and find it extremely frustrating to teach me.  Thank goodness for YouTube.  
Here are a few more close-ups:
Thanks for looking!
