Button It Up For Christmas

Today. I am here with a second post about our Christmas Color Challenge at Catch The Bug. Even though it was my day to do an ABC, I wanted to do a card as well.

Remember, we are having daily challenges, everyday this week, so you're going to want to play along in  as many as you can, to be in it t win it for the prizes up for grabs from Bugaboo Stamps! The grand prize, as well as  first, second and third places are only for those of you who participate in every daily challenge this week - So start now and get creating! You know you'd love to win one of the top prizes!  Of course, there are daily prizes, also, for those of you who aren't able to play along every day. Wither way, you have to be in it to win it, so come play with us at Catch The Bug!

My Christmas card uses the image, Ruby Christmas - Present Stack, from Bugaboo Stamps,
colored with Promarkers. I used the following sketch, Sketch N Stash Sketch #18, as my card layout.

I used round buttons and snowflake shaped buttons to embellish the card. The upper corner is decorated with a pink handmade bow. I used a sentiment by Sentiments 4 You, punched with oval punches.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
