I faffed about for ages trying to get this card to work with several challenge sketches...but in the end had to admit defeat...and use my own layout. I did manage to combine a few challenge themes though: Penny Black Saturday Challenge 'Buttons'; C.R.A.F.T. 'Buttons'; and Stamp Something 'Stitching'.
The image is from the 'Wonderful' set (by Penny Black), the paper is from the 'Cupcakes' pad by BasicGrey, and the flowers & buttons are all from Poppicrafts. I distressed all of the edges, and added the faux stitching using my Cutter Bee Bug, and a white gel pen.
