Quilt card for Designed2Delight

I was so glad our internet line got fixed! Everyone in the house panicked when our line went dead yesterday! My 2 teens need a connection for most of their schoolwork and of course fb, twitter and what have you. Can't live without it these days!
Anyway, before the internet disruption, I was making this post for this week's Progressive challenge at Delightful Inspiration. Because it's the first challenge for the month of May, everyone is free to grab the " Pail of Flowers" digital stamp at Delightful Inspiration blog. Create a card with the free image and you will be emailed the next digital stamp for free. If you missed playing along this week, this and other cute images are available at Designed2Delight digital stamps.
For my card, I focused on the quilted linen under the pail of flowers. I used a quilted background paper from Nitwit Collections. The sentiment "Sewn in Love" is from Meljen's Designs.
I decoupaged the flowers and glued yellow mini craft balls for the centers. I paper-pieced (it's my favorite technique) the quilted linen with the same paper I used as background. Same thing I did with the buttons. It took me some time to cut the mini buttons and glue them one by one on the frame and on the scalloped hem of the card but I'm pretty pleased with the result. I also coordinated a stitched ribbon as accent. 

Materials used:
Cream cardstock
Nitwit Collections from the Bear Necessities kit
Promarkers: Shale, Gold, Vanilla, Ice Grey2, Ice Grey4, Pastel Pink
Letraset Tria : R738,Y156, IG02
Mini craft balls: yellow
Stitched Chocolate and cream ribbon
