Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge 'Button it!'

Hello everyone, here we are with another Thursday challenge for LOTV. Our theme this week is to use buttons on our projects. No problem-oh! I love using buttons, and use them frequently. Here's what I came up with...

I decided to make a cute little wool felt tree with buttons for the Christmas 'balls'. I simply cut out two triangles from felt, stitched them together, and added some pom pom trim and button embellishments.
I used the Kitty Gifts stamp, colored with my colored pencils. 

The snowflake was a last minute addition when I discovered it already made in my old discarded embellishments box. Perfect!I knew there was a reason I saved all that stuff that never ended up on a card! LOL. 

Feeling inspired to use those buttons? Create your own card using a LOTV stamp, then enter it for a chance to win some cool prizes on the LOTV blog. I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Thanks for stopping by!
