Buttons and Bows and Lace, Oh My!

Well, darn...I had planned to use this Friday Sketchers sketch (one that came out last Friday) for my The Shabby Tea Room card, got it all put together, and missed the deadline for that challenge by about ten minutes.  Oh well, still had to write this post so...   I'll just have to check the deadlines better next time. 
The image is from Art Creations Friday.  I tinkered with the colors a bit and then printed it on canvas.  Used deckle edge scissors to cut around the image, inked the edges with Distress Inks.  All DP is Prima.  The little tag is a Grunge paper tag that comes with the packaging.  Attached it to the metal button with jump rings, then added the green button.  Flower is made from punches, spritzed with Glimmer Mist.  It's attached over some pieces of lace I aged with Distress Inks, and a few stamens I colored with Copics.  The little sticker on the tag I cut from a Crafty Secrets sheet.
