Deck the halls

Still playing with Holiday Button Bits. I had this bright idea to hang these little ornaments from a tree branch. So I started looking through my patterned paper and found this design amongst all the lovely papers in the Dewfrost 6 x 6 pack by Memory Box.

I stamped the ornaments individually, placing them were I wanted them on the branch, with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and attached the Vintage buttons with Pearl cotton. Tied a ribbon around and made a Bow Easy bow, then stamped the sentiment and added some flat backed pearls. Sorta clean and simple. It turned out pretty much how I'd envisioned it :)

Thanks for stopping by today! I love it when you do!
