The Challenge for the Whimsy Inspiration blog this week is to add a button.

To be honest with you that is something that I have never really used to much of, so this challenge has made me do something that I normal would stay away from and that is - buttons.

I don't really know why I don't use them, it's not like they look bad or take away from any project that I have ever done. So this challenge was good for me. I like the effect of the buttons on my card so maybe I'll try harder to use items that I typically stay away from. I stepped out of my box and tried something different so I hope that you are up to the Whimsy Challenge this week and will try to make a project/ card using buttons and play along on the

I colored the image "Sparkly Tree" by Moon Cookie Gallery from Whimsy Stamps with copic markers then added stickles to the little stars on the image. After I was done that then I used white liquid applique to the boughs to give it the depth of snow. I added stickles to the swirls on the BoBunny paper to give it that glisten of swirling snow.
I also used liquid pearls for the little balls that are on the tree.

Supplies: Sparkly Tree & sentiment from Whimsy stamps, circle & Fancy Tags Two from spellbinders, Bo Bunny patterned paper, Bazzill cardstock, White Opal liquid pearls & Star Dust stickles from Ranger, White liquid applique from Marvy Uchida, miscellaneous buttons, hemp, & ribbon.
