Button Tree

Can't believe we're into October now but i do love this time of year and cosy Saturday nights watching X Factor and Strictly come Dancing (Yippee!!). I'm really struggling with Christmas projects this year - must be this TOO hot weather we're having lol - so have been busy checking out all your blogs for some much needed inspiration..........and you haven't let me down!! I thought i'd try my hand at a black card for a change and this is what i came up with. I've used Tatty Button xmas tree, stamp in black and then heat embossed it with a clear embossing powder. I punched a scallop border and added sparkly gems then matted onto white card and tied a black ribbon on. The black flowers are all handmade using a Marianne creatables flower die, then dipped them in glitter (which doesnt show up to well does it lol) and matted and layered onto black and white card.
Enjoy rest of the weekend.
