Let's Go Caroling

Hey all! It's time for a recipe challenge at Catch The Bug! Sound like fun?! Hope so, because we'd really love for you to come play along with us! The recipe is to use buttons, twine, and a sentiment.  Don't be tied up by thoughts of twine! It's simple to use and can be lots of fun once you get started! I love twine! (but then, again, I love everything crafty!) Join us at Catch The Bug in our challenge this week, for your chance to win a digi prize pack from Bugaboo Stamps!

For my card, today, I've used the image, AKV Christmas - Caroling, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. All papers are from my stash, as is the twine.  I used two buttons recycled from old clothing that had been thrown away.  The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.  I used a clear star gelly roll pen to add just a little sparkle to the image.

My card layout uses the Sketch, below, from Sketch And Stash
