Ribbons and Buttons and Twine... oh my!

I got a wonderful package of yumminess in the mail today from The Ribbon Girl.
Lookey.

So I got to it straight away and made a simple ribbony card!
Ribbon Fun
Here's a close up of one of the beautiful Polka dot buttons - they are plain on the reverse (see the blue one in my card).

The sentiment is from THIS Hero Arts set.

And the button twine is perfect for threading through buttons. It's soft and easy to tie into bows.
Don't forget to enter their giveaway too - click HERE, become a follower and be in with a chance of winning a huge pile of ribbon.
Enjoy your day - check back tomorrow for the Lawn Fawn Cards for Kids Blog Hop. Should be fun. :)

I love the stitching on your cards. How do you do it? Do you use a sewing machine? If so, what kind of needle and thread do you use?!

Hi Lucy
The stitching on this card is fab, it's so straight. I've tried to do it a few times but can never get it straight enough....

Love the way you used the ribbon. This will help use up the short pieces that I hate to throw away. I am going to card lift this one :) Thanks for sharing.
