This is for the HYCCT25 challenge which is Button It. We were suppose to make a card using buttons. I went through my button jar and found 2 matching white 2 hole buttons. I used the hot glue gun to attach the buttons. I made sure that the holes on buttons were the right way for the eyes as well as the body. I used the CB snowman die cut for the hat, mouth & nose. The nose is orange glitter adhesive dp. I did the hat twice on SU black cs. I tied a red/white gingham ribbon around the neck. I also adhered a thin piece of red ribbon for the hat and attached a mini snowflake button with my hot glue gun. I used the CB bubble folder on GP white cs. I used the scissors to create 3 different hills, make it look like 3D. The sky is old DCWV holiday dp with snowflakes, I added lots of mini adhesive pearls to each snowflake. I used the MS Star punch on SU glossy cs, then added a light blue rhinestone brad for the center. I adhered it with the hot glue gun in the sky. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon on GP white cs, cut out and adhered it underneath the 1st layer of snow. I stamped 2 of the same trees but on different cs. The pattern dp is from Cloud 9 Design and the other is SU Old Olive cs. I added small silver adhesive beads to the green tree and small pearl adhesive beads to the pattern tree. I adhered them underneath the 3rd layer of snow. I also decided to add a reindeer so I stamped it on GP white cs, colored with SU markers, cut out and adhered it on the snow. I didn't have any tiny shiny red rhinestones so I used the small hole punch on a glitter Xmas flower and adhered it to the reindeer.
I had fun creating my little scene.

How clever to use the holes in the buttons for the eyes and *buttons* on the snowman. This makes such a sweet scene. I had to tilt my screen back to really admire that starry snowflake sky as it deserves.
