Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #69

It is time again for a Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge! The NEW Challenge is to use BUTTONS AND BOWS (with ribbon, naturally). 

This card has a story behind it. I had stamped, colored, and die cut the focal image for use with one of my IBSI Challenges, but then realized I did not look at the challenge sheet and the colors I had chosen (red and blue) did not match any upcoming challenge! (Doh!) I put the card pieces aside for later, and they came out again for this card, only I ditched the blue and went with red, pink, and gray! 

I colored the image with Copic markers. I tied a BOW with some poppy red satin ribbon. I tied some bamboo cord to the buttons.

I die cut the vine out of some printed paper and then glued the little red buttons onto it to look like flowers or berries.

I stamped the inside of the card as well. My brother and his wife have an anniversary coming up in April, so I hope I remember to mail this to them!
