New Sweetheart Papers -- Thinking of You

I'm having so much fun playing with the new Spring/Summer Close To My Heart papers! It was fun to pleat the paper for the "ribbon" look on this card. These paper colors are lush-ous!!! Now I'm going to have to make some Valentines, but this card needs to get in the mail for a friend who is rehabbing after her knee surgery. (We haven't had mail delivery in three days because of ice/snow! Maybe tomorrow?)
I'll write a note inside, but wanted to second- and third-generation stamp the buttons for a little whimsy to go with the pretty hearts and flowers since she's a seamstress.
I used:
Card recipe from Wishes by Jeanette Lynton--"Down the Middle" (p 35; I adapted it for my 5 x 6.5 inch card base)
Sweetheart Paper Packet
Inks: Baby Pink, Tulip, Amethyst
Stamps: Just Because, Buttoned Together
Colonial White Waxy Flax
Pink, White, and Amethyst buttons

I'm glad you visited my blog! Come again soon!
