Button It Up at Winter Wonderland

Hi Folks
Hope you are well and had a good week.  I am spending today helping my youngest daughter to sort out the final plans for her sister's hen weekend in Marbella.  We go in three weeks and the wedding is two weeks after that.  The time is going by so quickly and we are all getting very excited for the big day.  It will all come and go so quickly now.

Now enough of my waffling and onto crafty matters.  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  Our theme for this week is:
Button It Up
You can create any project you like as long as it fits the challenge theme and is christmas related.

Here is my inspiration project:

I used a wreath bubble stamp from Woodware for this project.  After stamping the image I filled in all the bubbles with a selection of buttons, gems and pearls.  I mounted onto green and black card.  A stamped sentiment and bow from my stash completed the card together with some faux stitching.  This is a small 4 x 4 inch card and was really quick and easy to do.  Could be mass producing these come Christmas.

Our sponsor for the challenge at Winter Wonderland this week is:
with a prize of a £10 voucher to the winner.
