More Untraditional Christmas Buttons

Even with practice, my night time photography doesn't do justice to the colors in my cards. Especially this time. The card is for Taylored Expressions sketch # 90 and the color challenge at The Playdate Cafe.It's a shame too because this sketch is sooooo usable and these colors are always going to be stunning.

See? The sketch has tons of possibilities any way you turn it and the colors are classic. At any rate, here's my card:

The stamps are from Papertrey Ink's Holiday Button Bits and the sentiment is from their Take A Bough. The papers are from the stash. If you look close, I took the lesson at Nichole's blog and layered the snowman's head up to give dimension. This stamp set is pretty much idiot proof though. I don't think you can wrong using it anyway you like!

Once again, sorry about the photo. This card is much better in real light but had to be submitted by midnight. Timing in life is everything! Thanks so much for stopping in!
