Get Well Soon!

This weeks challenge at Timeless Tuesday is for a Winter Card with Button(s).  Well, it was a bit difficult to "think Winter" when it's the middle of a hot Summer here in Australia!!  However, it was Flourishes Winter Blossom stamp set to the rescue (thanks for the idea, Ally!).  I started this one with a piece of white cardstock and punched one end with a Martha Stewart border punch, embossed the rest with Couture Creations Allora embossing folder, wrapped some lilac ribbon around it, and layered it onto dark purple cardstock.  Then I die cut some more dark purple cardstock with a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle die and adhered this to the card front.  Next, I stamped the images and the sentiment from Flourishes Winter Blossom set with Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, cut it into a rectangle, and rounded the corners with a punch.  I added three buttons in three different shades of purple and added the image piece with foam tape.  Finally, I tied a bow with the lilac ribbon and stitched a sparkly lilac button to the centre and attached it to the card front.

Copic Colours used were:  V09, BV000, B0000, C1, Y00, YG11, YG13, G21, G82, G43, G46.

Thanks for visiting!
