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.

Merry Monday Buttons

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!
