Tracy's Christmas Challenge #3

Who would of that that after power card making last weekend with 7 cards - I'd have enough gumption to do more!  But here they are!

This is my entry for Tracy's Christmas Challenge #3.  We were to make 5 cards using the same image and our layout had to include black and white cardstock plus another of our choice and had to have at least one button and no other embellishments.

I quite like how this turned out.  It's quite simple but very sharp.  The stamp sentiment says 'be merry'.  The buttons I used were from my two very old tins of buttons that were my husband's grandmother's that I happened upon and I litterally have hundreds of buttons that I've never used before - but I love this as the center of the snowflake.  The snowflake is embossed with Winerwhite embossing powder and has a bit of a glitter in it which you don't see here. 

This was quite a quick challenge for me (thank goodness!) and took less than an hour to put these together.

The five cards and a close up of one.

Well I'm off to bed now!  I don't think there will be anymore card making this week.  I've had a very successful week of card making but I have Ringette Provincials this weekend so I'm going to try and have a few early nights before the weekend!  As I'm posting this it's 12:oo midnight here!  Up in 5 hours for work!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
