A Bedtime Story

I've given my Promarkers the day off and done a bit of decoupage!
 The decoupage sheet and papers are from Papermania's Tilly Daydream range, both are in one of the current Docrafts goody bags.  I love the sketchy style of the artwork of this collection and the characters are really cute too.  The sentiment, which reads,"With lots of love from me to you", was fussy cut from one of the papers, one of the designs is a sheet of sentiments that look embroidered.  I inked all the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink to add just a little homespun shabbiness.
To finish off, I stuck on some assorted buttons, some of which I threaded with baker's twine, and I added some Card Candi to two of the corners.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Inky Impressions - #119 - Button It
The Crafter's Cafe - #22 - Anything Goes
Dutch Dare - #228 - For a Child
Sister Act - #18 - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar - #53 - Friendship
Sweet Sketch - #217 - Sketch
