Crafty Ribbons 'Button Up' Fabric Decor Plaque

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! I am here with my Crafty Ribbons project for our 'Button Up' challenge. Sorry its a little late, still struggling with this awful fluey virus and choking away with a horrid cough!
For this project I used the gorgeous new ribbons and buttons from Crafty Ribbons found here. I have a bag of fabric scraps that I save because they are so pretty and I dont want to throw them away. This project was perfect for using up some pretty fabric. I had a plain wooden plaque for altering so I covered this with cotton batting. I then covered the plaque with my chosen material and stapled on the reverse. I then decorated using the fab ribbon. I stapled a border ribbon around the middle, then cut one of the sentiments from another ribbon-stopped any fraying by sealing the ends with clear nail polish. I then glued this on the ribbon at a jaunty angle. Next I added matching buttons and then a hanging ribbon at the top.

I would just like to say I wish you all a Happy Valentines Day-I think its an opportunity for everyone to show they care about their friends and my blogging friends are all very dear to me. Thank you so much for all your support and wonderful comments which always brighten my day :-)
