Charm is the fish obviously, ribbons I plated three ribbons and also used the ribbon in the button as fake stitching > I also used 3 sets of dovecraft alphabet stamps > I must admit that i always regreted not having more alphabets, but now Trimcraft and Dovecraft do small clear and woodblock alphabet sets for 99p Im going to have loads (so they can also work for examples for my competiton.
