Custom button scaling too small

Go to solution Solved by MAC1,

I have a issue with my custom buttons.

The button becomes too small on different widths:
Large monitor looks fine, button is full size

On a smaller monitor the image scales down too much, I want to keep it at 100% the whole time
(like how buttons in squarespace behave):

Is it how i've set it up? can i add css that keeps the button at a suitable size?

Here is the button  code at the moment, the hover works and the animated scaling also:

div#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1701485718961_2891 {
    overflow: hidden;
    position: relative;

div#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1701485718961_2891 img {
    transition: transform 0.5s ease, opacity 1s ease;

    display: block;
    width: 100%;
    height: auto;

div#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1701485718961_2891:hover img {
    transform: scale(1.05);
opacity: 1;

Appreciate any support on this Cheers,

I got this code to work, hope it helps someone. Keeps the button image (no rescaling) at 250px at every screen width and also pumps it up to 280px at a window size bigger than 1200px :)

div#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1701485718961_2891 {
    width: 250px;
    height: 250px;
    overflow: hidden;
    margin: auto; 
    position: relative; 
    top: 50%;
    transform: translateY(-50%);

/* Media query for window width of 1200px */
@media (min-width: 1200px) {
    div#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1701485718961_2891 {
        width: 280px;
