I Love Promarkers DT Card - Bounty of Buttons

It's challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is, "Bounty of Buttons", meaning we'd like to see at least three buttons on your creation, as well as the use of Letraset pens, as usual.  We're sponsored this time by Live, Love Crafts.
 I decided on a sewing themed card for my DT offering this week, using this sweet Milk Coffee digi, coloured with Promarkers.  The paper is Papermania, Sew Lovely, all I had to do was plonk the topper in the middle, the fabric effect circle and stitching are all printed on, I just added a red mat.  The heart tag was made with a stamp from a matching Sew Lovely stamp set, stamped onto linen print paper, fussy cut out, and topped with a Sew Lovely ribbon loop and button.  For my "Bounty of Buttons" element, I created a frame of buttons round the edge of the topper, from my enormous button stash (I have a bit of a thing for buttons!), varying the colours and sizes to add interest.  To finish, I added a big, red, satin bow and a couple of pins.
