CHNC challenge 219: button it up

This is my card for CHNC challenge 219: button it up ... use at least one button on your Christmas design. I used the Cute as a Button 'Are we done yet' digital image (I won this from Cute as a Button, one of this week's sponsors) colouring this with chameleon pens, using a quickie glue pen and Art Institute fine glitter on the snow and chimney smoke. The torn people of red and white snowflake paper is an offcut.

The background was created running a piece of DCWV textured card with a Sheena Douglass snowflake embossing folder through my eBosser, sanding slightly and rubbing with pebeo silver gilding wax, which is more visible on the right of the photo than the left because of the angle of the camera. And, of course, I've added three felt buttons from Poundland.
