TRR#52 - Love Letters

We have a fresh challenge over at The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog and the lovely 'Keilly' has chosen this beautiful inspiration board photo for you to work with this time.

Here is my take. A sweet rustic little birthday card. I used some pretty papers and stitched along the edge using my trusty sewing machine. I added some 'May Arts Faux Canvas Ribbon' and zig zag stitched along the middle. 

I then used Serendipitys Heart Die to cut some white felt and then added a selection of gorgeous Ribbon Reel Ribbons (the beautiful May Arts 16mm 'faux canvas' Ribbon in champagne, 4mm diagonal stripe ribbon, 16mm Two Tone Aqua Blue Mesh Ribbon23mm Red Polka Dot Button and aqua blue leaf pin

The button has a small flower shape just behind it, cut using a Spellbinders Floral Die. The gorgeous sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps 'Compact Sentiments' set and stamped in PTI's Hawaiian Shores Ink. 

I added a cute 15mm red heart button and bluebell/white gingham button also from
  The Ribbon Reel shop to finish :)

I'm also playing along with the current sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog - FMS#83
