Ok so this is something I have been wanting to try for a while but actually finding the time to sit down and craft for my self has been a challenge with the school holidays :)
I have seen so many different cards using similar images and I wanted to have a go using all my Stampin' Up! stash here's what I used:

Card stock: Whisper white, So saffron,
Ribbon: Chocolate chip gros grain,
Ink: Chocolate chip, Close to cocoa markers,
Stamps: Tree from Forest friends stamp set, sentiment was from the pocket silhouette set.
Accessories: Button latte designer buttons from the mini catalogue.

I coloured the tree trunk with my marker and was careful not to colour any of the leaves on the tree.

I really love the way it turned out and the fresh colours ( I should have made 2 as I don't want to send it to any one now.)

Thanks for looking!

You are so cute and so is your card! I hope you take the time to make more for yourself:D I haven't had a chance to craft all week. TGIF!

Abi what a stunning card and such a clever way of using your buttons. I am not surprised you dont want to give it away

I was given a tin-full of buttons after my granny died, just figured out what to do with them, thanks!
I'm not surprised you want to keep it:D

Absolutely love this - and love how you used the tree stamp too. I've got a real thing going on for buttons at the moment so guess what I'm trying next.
