Paper Take Weekly Challenge - buttons and Fabrizio's Christmas card challenge

I think I must design cards in my sleep as I often wake in the morning with the vision of a spectacular card in my mind - unfortunately when I manage to get it to paper it's never as spectacular as it was in my imagination.

The brief for PTW was buttons. I cuttlebugged the tree, cut it out and then fastened 'stem' buttons through the card with wire. I threaded beads onto fishing line thread and wrapped them around the buttons.
