A Card With Buttons

Morning all - I had great fun making this card I'm about to show you. It took two hours to make - the whole of Midsommer Murders!! I do find crafting in front of the telly at night very relaxing.
I followed the sketch from this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge


and the theme over on The Paper Players


Here is my card

I used two different shades of grey card stock plus Whisper White. I also added some SU retired DSP in Baja Breeze. The flourish is from Everything Eleanor and has some Boho Blossoms placed around it with my buttons on top.
My Sentiment is from My Friend.

I'm off now to visit my dad - he's in the middle of his radiotherapy so I expect he will need some cheering up - see you soon - Jacqueline xx
