Buttons and bows

Back to some cards after a very busy few days.  This is my entry for the Whiff of Joy challenge on Buttons and Bows.  I have finally been brave and started to use up a bit more of my First Edition Up Up and Away paper pad which has been sitting around for quite some time (along with few other First Edition 6 x 6 pads)!  These papers are just so lovely you are afraid to use them all up - some of them are glittered and they are more like card than paper (200gsm).  Anyway all the papers on this card come from the pad, including the punched flowers and leaves.  The little buttons, ribbon and dummy all came from the craft fair in the NEC last Autumn or else the one in Belfast in April.  The border punch is an EK Success one called Morrocco Lace - their puches are the only ones which seem to punch well with thicker papers and cardstock.  The scalloped mats were made with Nestabilities dies.
