Sweet Stamps challenge- Ribbon, Buttons/and or Bows.

It's another great challenge at Sweet Stamps .  Our challenge theme for this week is Ribbon, Buttons/and or Bows.

  My parents just celebrated my their 59th Wedding Anniversary- this is the card I made for them.
  I used a very very shimmery cardstocks from Paper Temptress for all layers. The image was embossed in Queens Gold embossing powder. The border images were also embossed and fussy cut out. The larger boarder was cut down the center (so it does not meet in the middle) to fit side to side on the background. I inked up only the border of the larger stamp.
 The ribbon is a double layer and I added a button plus a gold corded bow. I added a couple of SweetCut flowers to balance out the card- also cut out of the Paper Temptress Gold cardstock. The rhinestone was colored to match using a Copic marker.
 This is the sentiment I added to the inside of the card.

Here are the Sweet Stamps supplies I used on my card:
