ABC Challenge - B is for...

Wow! What a fabulous response we had to our challenge last week...I do hope that you'll join us again this week...where the theme is:

'B is for Buttons'

Well...I went button crazy on my card...and made a snowflake shape out of clear buttons on a pearlised white card blank. I coated the buttons with some homemade glitter nail varnish (I added some glamour dust to an old bottle of clear nail varnish). I simply added a few adhesive gems in each corner to finish off the card.

Don't forget to stop by the ABC Challenge blog for some more inspiration from the rest of the design team...and to see who won last week's challenge...and who's made it in our first ever Top 5!
