A lovely start to the day :-)

I found out that I've won the Blog Hop over at 
What a lovely start to the day & the sun is shining :-)

Now onto my entry for CHNC this week
The challenge is to use buttons on your Christmas card

I used red buttons as the berries on my holly

I stamped the image using green stazon onto card & then 
using my distress inks stamped the image again in pine needles 
& cut them out & layered them. 
I mounted the card onto green bazil & added the button 'berries'

To finish I stamped the sentiment again in the green stazon ink 
directly onto the card.
