My Time Craft 'Recipe' Challenge

Good morning all, isn't this weather rubbish someone bring the sunshine back please. David and I had a lovely few days last week with our daughter and granddaughter although I am not sure how we got roped into babysitting on 2 occasions in such a short time especially when our son in law was at work for most of it lol.

Ok so this week at My Time To Craft we have a recipe for you, no need to get your cooking utensils out unless you want to of course! We have a list of items you can use and you must use at least 3 of them. 
Here is the list:-
2 Images
Stripy Paper
3 or More Eyelets
Double Bow (Ribbon, Twine or Cord Etc)
Gate Fold Card
Easel Card
3 Flowers
3 Buttons

For my card which I made for my neighbour whose birthday was yesterday I used Stripy Paper, Blue & 3 Buttons. I was really stuck for what to make and had looked down the RAF route because he is in that and couldn't find anything that related to what he did, then came across a card on Pinterest and it gave me the inspiration for this. The heart buttons were part a of a joke we were having with him. My papers are all digital downloads from the Silhouette store and I love that the pattern shrinks to fit the shape you want to put it on, it is not so obvious on the chevron but the striped bit is more so if you look between the banner ends.
