Going in a different direction

A shabby chic card I made.  Totally different than the cards I shared earlier.    Wow!  Two posts in one day!

I finally got to use my  Paper Trey Ink     Fillable Frames #10 die and stamp set! :-) I stamped the die with SU chocolate chip.   I  used a Lil Inker's stamp and die  for the banner. The paper is My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary mixed with So Sophie.  The flower is a  Prima which sits on top of a Melissa Frances glittered heart.  I stitched the edges with SU's sage shadow thread which I also used to stamp the sentiment.    The banner frame is stamped in perfect plum.    I used my PTI vintage touch inks on the distressed edges and each die cut.  The buttons are threaded with the same thread used to stitch around the stripe paper. 
Challenges for this card:
Waltzingmouse: sketch F
The Shabby Tea Room: Keeping Warm with photo inspiration
Paper Sundaes: flowers and distressing

I hope you are having a fabulous evening!
