This question is a follow up to this question:

I want to place this image

Inside of my buttons to the left of the word "button"
I want the picture to be above the gradient background color.

This is my code:

Append you background CSS with a positioning. e.g.

background: url('http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7446/10466150066_1c6b3cac4d_o.png') no-repeat 5px 5px;

Just play around with the figures til it is where you want it, you can also use things like
left center
5px center
etc
