Mid Week Motivation - Ribbon & Buttons

Good morning folks, it's Fliss here today with hopefully a bit of inspiration to encourage you to enter my challenge theme if you haven't yet done so. 
I decided to make a flowery creation with my recently rediscovered Twinkling H20 paints which I used to paint the flowers although you might not be able to see the lovely pearly shimmer in the photo.

I made the background paper by layer stamping a flourish from an elderly Impression Obsession clear set also recently discovered - can you tell I've been having a bit of a clear out lol. I stamped my chosen flourish with Adirondack Aqua and Pink Sherbet having first inked the card with Milled Lavender Distress ink.
I stamped the flowers (Crafty Individuals) with Memories Artprint Brown and painted them with the H20 paints - English Lavender, Northern Lights and Gold Dust. I cut them out and embossed the reverse with a large embossing ball tool. I stamped the leaves (also Crafty Individuals) with VersaFine Spanish Moss and cut these out.
I embossed a die cut heart (Papermania) with the Cuttlebug Victoria folder and then made a little faux button with a Nestabilities blossom die, embossed with the same folder and pierced holes with a pokey tool.
I assembled the card with some pretty polka dot ribbon and added a sentiment (Hobby Art) stamped on a scrap of card left over from my Monday class demo (a flourish from the same set over card coloured with pastel pencils - more on this technique soon)

So there you have it and I'm sure like me you're now longing for Spring!
