All Buttoned Up...........

They say better late than never, I'm here again, it's the last day of Jingle Belles 'All Buttoned Up' challenge and I've just finished my card. I asked Lisa H to give me a nudge if I started to fall behind and this morning I had a message reminding me it was the last day, thank you Lisa.
As you can probably guess you have to use buttons on your card, even though I've only made my card this morning, I had been thinking about it all week and knew what I was going to do, so here it is.


I decided to make a button wreath, very simple but fun I think, I wouldn't mind a full size one for my front door this Christmas. I just love buttons and have a huge collection, I just can't help buying more if I see them.
I used two different size circle Nestabilities to get make the base, and then started layering the buttons up until I was happy with the look, I added a bow and stamped the sentiment. It's a great way to use some of those buttons up we all tend to hoard.
Thanks for looking and next time I'm going to try my hardest to get it done the first week of the challenge, you never know I may get one done the second week too.
Hugs

When I saw your card I knew that that was what I should have done but then I would have been a copy cat so I didn't feel I should! But your card is totally gorgeous!
