Combined challenge card

I made a little card that I was planning to enter in the Cute Card Thursday challenge: anything but square. I seem to be doing only square lately and thought; aha something for me.
Then I happened to look on the Play Date Cafe PDCC 33 where they have a color inspiration that fitted mine, only I don't have any kraft paper -which I would like to have, seems hard to get in the UK, Bazill does a kraft color but not the real deal. Wonder why no one sees the gap over here? Afraid it would be to cheap? There is after all some lovely inspiration out there with the use of kraft paper/card.
Then All that Scraps: Buttons and ribbons challenge. Just up my street, although my buttons are faux, they are brads from Making Memories.
The card is cut with the Wild Card and I used also some flowers, cut with the Cricut on white paper and colored with Shimmerz and layered. The paper is from Papermania Rose Garden. The stamps are from Crafty Secrets Couple of Cuties, die cut with Nestabilities. The second circle is stamped in 2 shades of blue with a little bubble stamp. I used Copic to color the image.
Thanks for visiting and have a nice day.
