Merry Christmas

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Buttons, Bows and Bling
And here is my card for your inspiration:
I used a button and tied a bow with some fun red and white twine.  I added a little bling with a gold paint pen in the center of my poinsettias.  Down the left hand side, I used on the strips I created from scraps of a Christmas pack.  I love using these to add pattern to a CAS card without overwhelming it.  I added a very small strip of red card stock to add a distinct break between the patterned paper and main panel.  It also helps tie in the red twine and the flowers as most of the patterned paper has green in it.
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

I don't know how you managed to make such a cute image into such an elegant card, but nothing you do surprises me anymore, Heather. The thought and skill you put into every aspect of this card is amazing. My favorite elements are the white on white Merry Christmas sentiment, the patterned paper border, and the snowflake!

Thank you for joining us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week!
