Buttons, Buttons!

I am so excited about today's card! I've been on a dry streak lately, not really liking anything I come up with. But, this one is different!

I used the sketch from Card Pattern Sketches.

 And, was really challenged by The Paper Players to use a non holiday stamp for a holiday card! Ooooo. FUN!

I used a mix of real and paper buttons to make the cluster. I love clusters! I use them everywhere!
 I couldn't get a very good picture close up. Darn weather!
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Button, Button
Ink and Paper: Real Red, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Mocha Morning DSP
Other: Cherry Cobbler Twine, Big Shot, Nestabilities, Stampin Dimensionals, Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Holly Jolly Buttons

Thanks for stopping by!
