A Perfect Pair

Happy Sunday Bloggers!!!
It's time for the latest challenge at The Crafty Pad!
This week for challenge #162 the theme is
We want to see you use at least two pairs of something on your project!
Here's my little easel card

The image I have used is Teds in Love, a real Perfect Pair!
I love these little guys so much I've used them on a few different projects!
The Sentiment tickets are from The Crafty Pad Designs too.
I've used a few pairs on my card!

As ever the image is coloured with my promarkers.
I did some distressing of the edges to soften things down.
The DP is from a book I bought in Lidl, that well known craft outlet!
I love some of the stuff they do!
The ribbon for the bows is recycled from a present.

A close up of one of the pairs of buttons all from my stash
& the little pair of metal star charms
