Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 19: buttons and bows

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 19: buttons and bows. The beautiful rose image is Crafty Girl Creations Rose Stitchy Bear, supplied by the sponsor the challenge. Please click on the link and see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and enter the challenge with your creations with buttons and bows.

I've used Raspberry Road Design papers, cutting with image and surrounding papers with Spellbinders Marvellous squares dies run through my eBosser. Buttons were from Poundland long ago and the sentiment and bows are from stash. I coloured the image with spectrum noir pens.
