Crimbo Crackers Challenge 70 - Buttons

It's time for another Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme for the fortnight is:


And here is a little something I created sort of by accident!  The card is from my stash and I've had it for ages - I cut it down to create the 13.5cm square card.  I've got quite a few buttons (not sure how that happened!) and thought they would look good as baubles for a quick and easy Christmas card.

I printed one of the sentiments from a Polkadoodles Christmas cd directly onto the card stock, added the buttons (used glossy accents) and then added the bows and strings along with the half pearls.  And that's it!

It's nice to do something a bit different every once in a while, and the best thing is, I made a few of these in less time than it takes to make one that I've coloured and really thought about!

Good luck with the challenge - it last 2 weeks and although there isn't a sponsor, I'll be providing a little prize!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

As You Like It Challenge:  Favourite Christmas Style
Aud Sentiments:  Sentiment for December Holiday
In The Pink Challenge:  Clean and Simple and Pink
Crafting By Designs:  Get Ready for Christmas
Inky Impressions:  Pearls
