Buttons and Bow Birthday

Hello!  I have a lot of ribbon, buttons, and pattern papers in my stash so I decided to use these items to create this square birthday card.  It seems that I use less ribbon and buttons these days....how about you?
I  cut a Pattern Paper from Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary pad (have been hoarding this paper) with a Cheery Lynn English Tea Party Doily.  I placed this on a square Ivory CS that I embossed with Embossalicious Diesire Splendor EF.  I layered this with more of the Ivory CS that I edged with a Copic Marker BG72. To finish I added Happy Birthday cut with Cheery Lynn dies, a handmade bow of Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon, and some buttons that I thought were perfect for the corners.  Buttons were saved from an old dress.

Cheery Lynn Designs: Challenge #236 Theme is Doilies. Used English Tea Party and Happy Birthday dies.

Really Reasonable Ribbon: Challenge 147 is Buttons and Bows.
Craft-Dee Bow Z Challenge: Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow
City Crafter Challenge:  Week 327 Birthday Wishes

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
