CTD#181 - Blooming Button Bits Hello Friend

Hello and good morning to you!  It's Wednesday and time for the Color Throwdown Challenge #181
It's my turn to play hostess over at the Color Throwdown blog and I've chosen some soft colors and romantic flowers for our inspiration this week.  The inspiration photo below makes me think of spring weddings and the smell of fresh cut roses.  I hope it inspires you to create a card or project using these colors and to join in on our challenge this week.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Blooming Button Bits and Think Big Favorites #3 to create a clean and simple card.  I used white cardstock for my card base with a woodgrain embossed panel of blushing bride on top.  I stamped my sentiment on a PTI die cut tag and added ribbon, then stamped the three flowers and leaves from the Blooming Button Bits set, cut them out, popped two of the flowers up with foam tape and added buttons with twine.
