Buttons and Bows

Morning all.
Another weekend so another chance to play at Fantasy Stampers . This time we would like to see your stamped creations based on -

Buttons and Bows

Here is my DT inspiration card.


A bit different for me but its good to stretch yourself.  
I used DIs in Scattered Straw and Worn Lipstick to create the background then over stamped with Scattered Straw with a hessian texture stamp from Kaisercraft and a script stamp from a Hobby Art set. The greeting is SU Sassy Salutations.
The flowers were cut using some Sizzix thinlet dies then given the same treatment as the background without the stamping. I added buttons with jute string bows, some corrugated card, extra buttons, a scrap of muslin and a string of pearls complete. The background was mounted on a piece of kraft then a white 6 x 6 white base card.

I made it with a few challenges in mind
