A Button Tree

I have been looking at this tree image from the Unity November kit of the month for some time now, thinking how cute it would be with buttons and I finally found the time to make a card with it.  I also have spent several days organizing my scraps into a more managable mess and decided that I must start using more scraps, so that is what I used on this card.
I stamped the tree on Rustic White cardstock in Burnt Umber and colored in the base of the tree and outlined the branches with prismacolor pencils.  The buttons are a mix from several places.  I cut the image with a curvy rectangles nestie then distressed and curled the edges. The ribbon is also from my stash. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a blessed day!

LOVE all the design elements you've pulled together...the dots on the ribbons and the dots (buttons) on the tree. Very cool.

That ribbon is the perfect choice to go with those buttons and that polka dot strip.
