Deck the Halls with Buttons of Holly

Good morning All!  Amazingly I'm back with yet another post this week.  This is one of the cards I was busy creating.  I had stamped the Holly image at Maureen's house a couple of weeks ago as, sadly, I don't own that stamp set.  I finally got around to playing with it and found that Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #47 displayed the Holly very nicely.

I could have probably added some ribbon but as soon as I'm happy with a card I try to stop there.   And I liked the colour proportions of this card.  Super easy, inexpensive and yet elegant. Don't you just love the buttons?  Maureen you've got me addicted to buttons!!!  

Thanks so much for visiting.  Hope you are enjoying your week.
