? Christmas Birthday !!



I made this card following the sketch on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge I also used the colours red/green so it qualifies for the Colour Create Challlenge and I used 'buttons' so it qualifies for the Pink Elephant Challenge .I have had this stamp for a long time ( a couple of years!) and I've never used it so when I saw the 'buttons' challenge I just thought I'd dust it and give it an airing :-) I used another bit of the same SU paper I used a few days ago, I love this green ! I also used red cordinations, one piece just sanded and the other swiss dotted. The buttons are papermania and the ribbon in from my tangled messy ribbon drawer !!
I tried not to make this look 'Christmassy' but as soon as I stuck those buttons on it transformed into a christmassy card !! so this will be saved for a December b'day :-)
Ooh I forgot to say I coloured this with my new prisma pencils and blended with odourless spirit ( bartoline, same but cheaper than sansador the guy in the shop said !!! )
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave one :-)
