Dream Valley Challenges DT #67 Buttons!

For my DT card for The Squirrel and the Fox please scroll down to the previous post. Ta.

Good afternoon! And welcome to my new followers! Take a pew, have a cuppa and a slice of virtual chocolate cake!

Our Challenge at Dream Valley is Buttons and our lovely sponsor is Freckled Fawn Go and take a look at the fantastic embellishments they sell! Yummy!

I have seen a number of Christmas cards that have wreaths on them, and thought I'd have a go:


I drew around a circle Nestie to make the outline of my wreath. I used a Spellbinders Foliage die and two snippets of green card for the leaves, which are only glued down the middle to give a bit of dimension. The buttons are from stash, in several shades of red. The bow is made with ribbon I bought from the Pinflair shop in Hertford, which is full of gorgeous stuff! The sentiment is stamped in gold Color Box pigment ink, using a very old stamp.

Ok, now it's over to you! Go across to Dream Valley and see the gorgeousnesses that my teamis have made! Dig out some buttons and be creative - it doesn't have to be a card, remember!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
