WMSC#71-Poinsettia Buttons

I love poinsettias.  I love their deep red color, their delicate shape, pretty much everything about them.  Today's WMSC#71 card features poinsettia buttons.  Here's the sketch by Kelly Schirmer on which my card is based: 






Here is my card:

This is a 5 1/2" square card and the base is a beautiful deep green pinefeather cardstock from PTI.  I made my own patterned paper by stamping a sentiment and icicle image from Waltzingmouse stamps Compliments of the Season alternately in green and red ink.  It makes a really pretty combination and I dotted some stickles in the center of each little snowflake.  The main image is a button card from Papertrey Ink's Button Boutique.  I made my own buttons using Waltzingmouse stamps Big Blooms Poinsettia stamps.  Two of the buttons are covered with diamond glaze and really do resemble buttons you might purchase.  The button card is layered over a Spellbinder fleur de lis square frame and snowflake-impressed Spellbinder square diecut.  I zigzag stitched around the perimeter and tied a pretty gingham bow and cinched it in at the center with a "real" poinsettia button.  I think I will send this to one of my crafty friends this Christmas, who better to appreciate buttons than another crafter?  Thanks for taking a look.

What a beautiful card, love the way you used the button card for the poinsettia buttons. Just too sweet and the fleur de lis in red just make the button card pop!
