Button, Button, Who's Got a Button?

Good morning, crafty bleeps!  How was your weekend?  I hope all went well and your ready to face the new week refreshed!

It's the first Monday of the month...you know what that means?  Wink Wink Ink's October Challenge has been posted over on our CDAC Group.  Come on over and join us!  Our current challenge is all about BUTTONS!  Use any WWI image and buttons on your creation to qualify for a $10 gift certificate!  Woot!

I used the newly released Season's Tweetings for my card...I immediately fell in love with this set!  I do have a thing for snowmen, you know!  I have to say I am thrilled with the way the card turned out!  I used real buttons for his eyes (they were drawn as buttons anyway) and a button on top of the flower as well.  I also decided to make a tassel for his hat out of embroidery thread.  Cool. huh?  I colored the image and sentiment with Copics.  I also used a corner rounder, Xmas Red Stickles, Tim Holtz distress ink in Walnut Stain, Prima flower, flower punch, Basic Grey Jovial DP, pop dots, buttons and embroidery thread from stash.  I used the current sketch at Taylored Expressions and I love it!  What do you think of my card today?
