Allsorts challenge 29

It was super to see so many of you joining in the fun at Allsorts again this week and so many varied creations for Emma's song title theme. Lots of old favourites, but some new ones as well. Lisa has selected the theme for this weeks challenge and would like to see "Buttons" on your creations. As always it can be a card or any other crafty make, just remember the buttons to be in with a chance of winning the wonderful prize on offer from our sponsors Digisparkle.
I know I said I was done with Christmas cards but I did make this one a couple of weeks ago ready for today. The snowman is Mr Cool, Penny Black 4003H coloured with Copics. The Christmas trees are cut out from JudiKins 2996H which I stamped onto black gloss cardstock and embossed with detail white embossing powder, then decorated the trees with gems, cord and buttons.
The DP is My Minds Eye and the vellum torn across the bottom is Word Prints Scrapbook Sally which is ready embossed with snowflakes. The big snowflake is from the Cuttlebug cut and emboss folder.

What a beautiful card, Brenda! You are good being almost done with your christmas cards. I have done loads of cute ones, but need to think about some more adult ones now. I'll be looking for more inspiration when Lynne, Megan and I come to see you next week!
