Get Well

Hello All My Crafty Friends!!
 
I hope you all had a great weekend.
I am still recovering from my foot surgery.
I get my stiches out tomorrow, and will
be off of work for a few more weeks :)
 
I spent some time in my craft room today and
will be sharing 2 cards with you today.
 
Here is my first card.
 
 
 
I was inspired by this post on PINTEREST
I had just received some
October Afternoon buttons
that I got from PeachyCheap.com
and thought they would be perfect to
make a similar card.  The papers are from
My Mind's Eye and Webster's Pages.
The stamps for the pot and flower stems
are from Close to My Heart "With Love"
and "Botanicals Super Set".
I used Tim Holtz Distress ink in
Frayed Burlap, Peeled Paint,
 Broken China and Fired Brick.
The sentiment is from My Creative Time's
"Vintage Sentiments" set.
I added some twine to the buttons
and finished with a bow tied with
my new 3 Girl Jam Bow Maker!!
 
I will be entering this card into
the following challenges:
 
(use 1 bow, 2 pattern papers and 3 buttons)
