Papertrey Ink: Make It Monday - A la Carte

Make It Monday A la Carte

This past Make It Monday was A la Carte style.  We got to choose which Make It Monday challenge we would like to do and I chose #54 Glitter Buttons.

I've been making glitter buttons for a long time, and never thought of it as a challenge except when I didn't have the time needed and would attempt to find a similar color button already glittered up. But alas I couldn't find what I was looking for so I ALWAYS keep a bottle of glitter glue on hand!!! LOL!

I was trying to figure out to do with all the big buttons I had hanging around since I use the little ones for accents on my cards mostly. With Christmas being here, it was the perfect opportunity to use them up and this is what I came up with:

I used the following supplies to make this card 
(All from Papertrey Ink unless noted)

Sentiments from Holiday Button Bits stamp set
Scarlet Jewel Cardstock
Stampers Select White Cardstock
Dark Chocolate Cardstock
Holiday Flourishes and Swirls Patterned Paper
Nestabilities Scalloped Oval Die
Tea Stained Duo ink cubes
Colorbox Frost White Ink pad
Ripe Avocado Buttons
Scarlet Jewel Buttons
Scarlet Jewel Twill Ribbon
Studio G Diamond Glitter Glue
Studio G Green Glitter Glue
Studio G Burgundy Glitter Glue
Any paint brush

It was a lot of fun to make!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
