Merry Monday: Buttons

I'm back today with a card for Merry Monday's current challenge: Buttons.  I have some teeny buttons from one of the craft stores, and decided to use them as berries on a wreath for my card.


supplies: cream, cranberry, and green cardstock, Memory Box Grapevine Wreath (discontinued), cut twice, Wplus9 Folk Art Florals (discontinued), Lawn Fawn twine, tiny red buttons, Hero Arts Miracle of the Holidays sentiment (retired), Red Royal ink

I knew that this wreath had been discontinued, and brought back as part of Simon's Chisolm Wreath set, but it seems almost everything I used today has disappeared!    Story of my life!

i know exactly what you mean--I've been wanting the WP9 folk art dies for ages, but I'm too late. Love the way you used all the dies and buttons.

I just love this adorable card! So creative with the little bird and birdhouse and the buttons art just right. I have this wreath die and now feel inspired to use it again. Thank you for that.
