A Card for Sugary Sunday Challenge on Facebook

This weeks Challenge over on Sugary Sunday on Facebook is to use Kraft Paper and Ive used it for the background rather than for my image. The image was stamped onto white card then coloured with my copic pens, its a Funky Kits Stamp by the way, I then cut it out with my oval Nestabilitie die and mounted on a larger oval cut out of the Kraft Paper.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the first mount is a 6" square thats been put through my cuttlebug with a embossing folder, and I cut a smaller square and did the same with another of them, then around the middle I wrapped a piece of vintage ribbon and created a ribbon bow on the right hand side and finished of with a large square button in the middle.
The mounted image was then placed towards the left and the sentiment across the bottom right hand corner, to finish of I have used two roses in brown and cocoa and stuck them on top of some punched out leaves and these were stuck in the top right hand corner.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
