Buttons and bows

This is my card for the following challenges :

The background was stamped with Versamagic inks using the flower stamps from the My Minds Eye Bloom 'n' Grow stamp set. I then sponged some Brilliance ink around the edge. I used the Diamonds and Dots Quickutz embossing folder and rubbed Pearlescent Purple Brilliance ink on the inside of the folder so that the card wasn't totally white. The border stamp is also from the Bloom 'n' Grow stamp set stamped with Versamagic ink. The edge punch is by Martha Stewart.

I didn't have any buttons of the right colour so I used Currant Alcohol ink to colour some blue buttons, and added them to the centre of the flowers. The leaf punch is also a Martha Stewart. The vase and flowers are from the Rubber Stamp Tapestry set Yumys Garden. I cut it out with a scalloped circle Nestability and sponged some more Brilliance ink around the edge before removing the die.
We managed to go out for a walk this morning, it did rain on us a little, but it felt so good to be out in the fresh air. On our way home I bought myself a new chair for my craft room, so I won't sink to the floor now when I sit !
Thanks for looking
