Raspberry Snowflakes.

Mmmm don't you just love out of the ordinary winter colours? There was something about this raspberry colour that I just couldn't shake. I HAD to stamp a snowflake into it!



I provided a close up to show you my buttons because I want to talk about buttons. I really love that floss look but of course I don't own every colour. My solution is to use paper strips. Yes, those fine paper strips that land on your desk during cutting. They are PERFECT for dressing up your buttons.



As you can see I also decided to make some mini tag cards too.

Your dark thread stitching is a wonderful contrast against the BG paper. Just lovely!

So cute. I love the paper threading. I would have never thought of that. Plus, I love that you didn't hide the pieces in the back. Love the raspberry too.
