Buttons the Snowman

This week I am a Guest DT over on Craft's Mad and Loving It and I have set a sketchie with a theme called 'The 3 B's - Buttons, Bows and Beads'. This challenge blog is normally set on Craft's Mad and Loving It over on Craftbubble. Please feel free to join in with us!

Here is my sketchie.....

and here is my card.....

The image a Motivet stamp called 'Buttons the Snowman', I have highlighted parts of him using promarkers and the blender pen.

Nestability - Label 15.

The circular shape is a Marianne Design Creatable embossing and die cut, distressed around the edge with Tumbled Glass Tim Holtz distressing ink.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid with christmas novelty snowflake buttons to the centres.

I have added Star Dust Stickles glitter glue to the snowman's buttons and scarf.

The snowflake is a 2" Woodware punch covered with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels and added beads to the centre.

The irridescent swirl backing paper, ribbon, lace and pearl beads are from my stash.
