Mel Jens Challenge #35 'Buttons and Bows'

Two of My Favorite Things....Buttons and Bows. Made a Thank You card for a neighbor and used 2 of Meljens Freebies, Frosty and Starry Holly, thought he was so cute. Made him 3-D (more obvious in person) by cutting out his hat and his carrot nose and popping up on dimensionals, popped up the holly on his hat a 2nd time and the corner Holly too. Used to do this as a kid when crafting with my Mom in the 70's with Holly Hobbie wrapping paper and some kind of silicone glue. (Oops, just aged myself). Added ribbon and a Bow and lots of Buttons, thought teeny red buttons for the Holly Berries was a natural. And of course lots of FROSTY 'stickles' glitter so Frosty was really Frosty. I liked the Red and Blue with the Plaid for this card. Topped it all off with a snowflake and another button. Thanks for the fun challenge ladies and for the Freebie Digital Stamp. (My Neighbor has already called to let me know she enjoyed the card and of course the homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies- My Boys say they are the World's Best, probably just to be sure I will make them again.)
