Ismaki Challenge #14

...and guess what???? I am the guest designer!!! I got the email and it was addressed to DT team and Kathy - I thought I got it by mistake!! (LOL) I was like it can't be for me!!! (haha) Once I calmed down I was really tickled pink - this is my first time for something like this - so thank you Kianel.
Anyway on to my card. I was stumped with keeping the sketch as is so I had to tip it on its side!! My main image is from Crafty Secrets clearstamps and the sentiment is from the $1 bin at Micheal's. I used pp from Cosmo Cricket and cranberry cs from CTMH. I had two chipboard buttons laying around so that is what I used for the similar shaped "extras". The option was to use ribbon so that was perfect to put in my buttons!! I also used chocolate waxy flax and hero arts flowers. I sponged around everything with chocolate ink to give it a more distressed look! (my favorite look- hence my blog name)
Thanks again Ismaki for asking me to be a guest and for the awesome sketch!! You made my day!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
