Sentimentally Monochromatic

This is one of the cards I've made for the Macmillan Cancer Care Org who'll be coming in to my Dad more and more over the coming months. It was quite a simple and quick card, so quite a change from my usual. I love the sentiment on the plaque and felt it deserved to be centre stage. The ribbon is actually lying face down as I wanted the silver to show more, and some of my mother of pearl buttons that I found hiding away....I do hope I can find more lol. 

It's a very simple receipe as everything is Stash, no idea where any of it came from. 

I'd like to enter into these challenges, if you'll have me :-
Simon Says Stamp- Give Thanks
Crafalicious Challenge - Anything goes
Our Creative Corner - At least 3 different embellishments 

A close up of the lace and buttons
