Christmas Stamping all Year long Challenge 20-Buttons and Ribbons

The challenge this week is brought to you by ME~! Yep, I get to be Hostess Challenge Once a Month and I love it!!!! The challenge is to use Buttons and Ribbons as creatively as you can!!!

If you head over to the main blog Maria has also provided an amazing sketch for you to use, although I didn't use it on this card.

Also, I have two posts today, so don't forget to Scroll down to see my Pink Cat Sneak Peeks!!!

I used my Cricut Christmas Cheer Cartridge.........see I'm following through on getting more creative with that ( 'kay Frances, dig yours out!!! hehe) to cit the Christmas Tree out in Kiwi Kiss Paper............this paper is one of the retiring in colours from Stampin' up! Let me tell you, it's one of my favourites and I just ordered 3 packages as it's just so yummy!!!

I threaded Silver Wire through the Heart Shaped buttons, curling the wire over a Q-tip with one end cut off. I added a few dew drops to fill the empty space. The DP is from SEI.

The sentiment is from the Circle of Friendship set from Stampin' Up! and I punched a couple of ferns, with my Martha Stewart Punch to anchor the sentiment.
How are your Christmas Cards coming?
Don't forget to play the challenge, I'd love to see what you create!
Happy Stamping!
