Love it. So how DID you get the ribbon through the button holes? I love this look too but get so frustrated trying to thread the ribbon. Please share. Thanks. Again ... great card.

The trick, I guess, is to have fingernails?!! Or perhaps use tweezers (from out tool kit!!) to pull the ribbon through the button hole. You also have to cut your gingham ribbon on an angle so you have as much of a "point" of ribbon as possible to poke through the hole. You'll have a teeny tiny bit of ribbon come through the button hole and then use your fingertips to yank the rest through- the end of the ribbon gets very frayed and you'll have to trim it afterwards, but "VOILA!"
