Week 155 -Buttons and Bows

Good Morning Everyone!

This weeks offering has been inspired by the lovely Debs entitled Buttons and Bows.
I have used one of the fabulous Stamp Addicts silhouette stamps which I love to use which I have stamped in Sepia Archival ink which gives a great sutle appearance which really suits the design.
I used a Marianne dye as the base for the stamp and have distressed it with Vintage Photo distress ink.  The background papers are from my stash, I have distressed the edges with my TH tool and inked them with the Vintage Photo.  The tags have the heart shaped buttons on them.  To finish off the card I have used Marianne daisy punch to add flowers in the garden and added cream cotton lace and some chiffon ribbon. 
This card would really suit so many occasions from engagement to anniversary or a friends birthday card.
I hope that you like today's offering and as always pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog to be inspired even more with the stunning designs that the Design Team have brought to you today.
Thankyou so much for popping by, please leave a comment if you can.

Bye for now
