Less is more week 25 - Recipe - Button or ribbon

Hi all, hope you're well. 

Sorry I've been MIA recently.  I think it must be something to do with the summer months when my mojo goes on holiday and I lose all interest in crafting and blogging and my garden wins my attention, hands down.  After a lot of grafting this weekend my garden is looking beautiful.  I'll put some piccies on for you to see when I get a minute.

Anyway, I have managed a little card for the  lessismore challenge this week (I've missed a few weeks recently).  The theme is a recipe of button or ribbon to feature on your card.

Here's mine:

I've used my free Tatty Ted stamp from last month's Creativity magazine. Isn't he cute? 

The background paper is Pink Petticoat and my buttons are a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the heart shaped button is a Sizzix Sizzlet die which I covered in Anita's 3-D gloss.

I don't usually make A6 size cards, but the reason behind it was I found an envelope inside the Creativity magazine asking for a donation of a card to the Cancer Research charity,  so this is my donation. I'm a keen supporter of this charity as we lost our beloved dad to cancer 15 years ago at the age of 57.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope to be back with Mr Mojo soon.  Take care and have a good week.

Hi Sue,

Which ink do you use? I find it difficult to find a good gray ink.
