Flowery sorry all buttoned up

This cute little fella is a freebie digi to use as part of the Digi Doodle challenge. I thought with that expression he works well for a Sorry Card for a friend. Of course it would have to be for a slight misdemeanour, I can't see using it to get away with wrecking someone's car lol  - not unless it came with a cheque of course!! I'll most likely save it for the next time one of my friends has a fall, with our condition it happens often (No! not drink).

I paper pieced the bath, had to have another go at paper piecing didn't I : ). My green scalloped ovalie thing I made from a tag, liked the shape so cut the same pattern the other end of it. Shiny part of flower showing up orange in pic isn't it, it is yellow though.

I was brave with this card and used some of the distressed scrapbook papers I'd been hoarding......and some of my much loved, oh so precious, hand made mother of pearls. I'd buy some every time I went to the local craft fayre. In the end the guy said he'd sell me no more until he saw me wearing some lol.

My receipe:-
DSP's....stash, part of a distressed set I have.(e.bay) 
Buttons ...stash, hand made mother of pearl, craft fayre
shiny stuff ... fabric flower and butterfly & 'gem' from stash

Bath tub and scallop frame are perfect together. As the colour scheme. Oh, scallop comes from tag! Great stuff :) Thank you for your excellent tip.
