More PTI Anniversary Challenges

Here's my entry for today's challenge of "Thinking Big". Whenever I need a big sentiment, I think of these great greetings in Big and Bold Wishes. The main greetings are also in one of my favorite fonts!

I still love how teal and brown go together, so that's what I went with on here. The greeting is actually stamped with Stampin' Up!'s Early Espresso, but it photographed almost black. I hadn't used the button bow technique in a while so I figured I'd do that. That technique is where you loop the ribbon, tie a knot in the center with string to actually cheat making the bow, then add your button on top- I know I found out how to do this from a video, but I cannot remember who posted it, sorry!
