Birthday buttons

This card is for the sketch for Stamps & fun = creativity 108:

and for Shabby tea room 123: sew crafty where this inspiration photo was given and we were asked to use buttons, ribbon/twine and stitching:

All papers used are offcuts from DCWV, another opportunity to visit Pixie's crafty snippets 30 - perhaps I should explain that I have boxes of offcuts because I have one for patterned paper, one for solid colours, one for cream and one for white - doesn't sound so bad then, does it?!

My buttons are the lovely Stampington 'antique buttons' stamp with a bit of copic colouring. The sticky stitched ribbon and the glittered tag sentiment are from stash.

Why is it that in the photo the blue striped paper looks crooked at the top?

This is also for:
