Gingham Holly Christmas Card

I think this card needs a bit of fine tuning but the bones of the idea are there. I think it might need a sentiment, but I haven’t decided where and how yet.
 Holly Christmas Cards Using Buttons (2)
The holly leaves are made using a large punch and the buttons were a job lot from a stall on Wolverhampton market a while ago. As soon as I saw this big plastic bag full of small red buttons I thought “holly berries”

Now what can I do with the other five hundred?

The gingham paper is a free download from http://www.scrapbookscrapbook.com/

Blogger playing up for me tonight - hopefully this comment will post okay :)

I would LOVE to have the amount of talent you do! This card is simply beautiful! Love the faux stitching, leaf punch... buttons and gingham. It's just the kind of card I'd like to recieve within the next 99 days or so *lol*

Lovely card - I'm a button collector too but I just collect, I don't use them very often but I'm going to try harder to add some to a card now. Thanks for the inspiration.
