Good morning lovely friends and fellow blogsters, thank you for the brilliant comments on my last card .... and the ones about Blossom and her 'Feliway fix'!!!
Well peeps, the challenge at our CCC this fortnight is from Zoe and she has asked us to use 1 Button, 3 Brads, 1 Ribbon and 1 other embellishment on our cards. Being from Planet Susie this is the first one I came up with
Only Joking!!!!! This picture just flitted through my mind and tickled me so here it is 1 Button, 3 Brads, 1 Ribbon and 1 other embellishment, the other embellishment is the sequin star at the top of the tree I haven't counted the sentiment!
When I'd had my 5 minutes of frivolity, I thought I had better sort out the real card .....I have some new Tonic dies in my collection and I wanted to try one out - it isn't exactly Christmassy but there are quite a few twiddly bits on it and I think it looks quite nice with the brown card showing through from underneath. I am not ashamed to say that I used another one of my LOTV toppers and my extra embellishment is quite a lot of Stardust glitter on her hat, coat and the snow. If you can't find the button, I assure you it is there - take a look at the final pic and you can see it huuuuugely enlarged. I managed to use only three brads by popping my sentiment on the top right hand corner over where the 4th brad should have been!!!!
Here is my button - well you didn't say whether it had to be any particular size Zoe - I have used a 4mm one from my box of dolls' house stuff and popped it on her handbag! I'm not cheating honestly!

I hadn't a clue what I was going to do when I first set out to do this one but I'm quite pleased with the result, it is nice and flat (for posting) so that is definitely a 'plus' for me.
