Creative Clear Stamps Challenge 4

Sorry I missed last week's challenge at CCS but back this week for the "ALL about Buttons" challenge. I copied an idea from Jennie to make background paper using the sentiments from the Holiday Seniments stamp set. I also used the tree Stamp from Let it Snow. Not very original ...just an old copycat! I stamped the tree on white CS after I embossed an oval in the center. Then I masked the oval and stamped the sentiments. Because I did not like the look of this, I added  some red ribbon( to hide a goof) and a red frame cut with nesties. Next time, I'll stamp the background first and then stamp tree separately onto the oval and attach. Now for the buttons--I had these tiny pearl buttons that I painted with a red Sharpie and attached with glue dots. Make sure to let dry before handling.
