Think pink, with buttons & stitches

For my second card I followed a sketch, a pink theme and had to incorporate stitching (fake or real) & buttons.

The background paper is Pink Petticoat 'Wild Blossoms' collection and the decoupage is from my Forever Friends cd. The ribbon is remnants from my stash & the buttons recycled from some old clothing (I knew they would come in useful one day !!)  I used fake stitching on the scrap of pink paper and finished the card off with the chipboard sentiment. This is the first time I've put buttons on a card & I'm kicking myself now for not pinching all the lovely old & unusual buttons my mom had before they were thrown away.

I will enter this into the following challenges
CES challenge 'Button It!'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'A Stitch In Time'
