Day 14 - Buttons

I love buttons.  There's something decidedly homely about them.
I know lots of people who collect buttons in jars (myself included), and they're not necessarily old or ornate buttons, just those spare buttons that seem to float around the place just waiting for someone to pop them in a jar.  I spent a very pleasant half hour looking through my button jar for five red buttons to create this card.  I drew the holly leaves with a felt tip pen and then coloured them in with kids markers.
 
 
YOUR TURN: Create a Christmas card using buttons.

Oh, I love your buttons - that's so clever how you turned them into holly! Love the embossed panel on the bottom, separated by that gorgeous red border. A very classy card!
