The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 18

Hi There...

I hope you have all had a fab summer...and for those of you with children due to go back to school tomorrow....Peace at Last !!!   I love the sketch for this challenge which can be found here and as part of the challenge we have been asked to use buttons...

I have used one of the gorgeous Manga Girls stamps available here at the brilliant home of Sugar Nellie - Funky Kits.    Here is my card..

I have gone almost monochrome with the card...I have used the Nantucket range of papers from Craft Obsessions and a very royal purple card to co-ordinate with. I have also made some bigger blooms by layering the hydrangea flowers and adding the all important buttons in the centre.
White lace and a strip made using the doily lace punch from Martha Stewart were used to finish of the design..oh and of course some flat back pearls and pearl headed pins. I have left of the message and I am not sure at the moment who will be getting this little lovely in the post.
Here is a close up of her
and a picture to show the depth of the card.
Thanks for looking and I love to read your messages...
