Pressie from Down Under

My brother-in-law arrived from Melbourne bearing gifts -  my baby sister had sent me all the in colour ribbons and cardstock which are current in the Aussie SU catty!  These colours have been retired from the US catty, but I still love them and prefer them to the new in colours in the US catty.  It was their way of saying "thank you" for our hospitality during my BIL's stay and for chauffeuring him up to Matlock for his skeet (clay pigeon) shooting competition.  

My DD lives in Leeds, so we carried on driving and went to visit her too as she is celebrating her 6th wedding anniversary and I just had to use the new in colours so here it is!
Nothing technical about this card - just a question of stamping, cutting and layering and sticking!  For the "thread" on the buttons - I cut a very thin strip of cardstock to use because I didn't have any matching cotton.  Hope you like it.

The top inside card sentiment is from Circle of Friendship - a really versatile set.  The bottom sentiment - "happy" from Happy Everything, and the "anniversary" from Cheer & Wishes.  I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to position the lettering just where I wanted it before stamping and punched out some hearts, one adhered directly to card base, the other raised on dimensionals to add a bit of interest just below the sentiment.
