Merry Monday # 195 Buttons!

Welcome to another Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge by the fabulous Nina...
who wants us to use buttons on our cards!
Now I admit to having to think about this one and looking on pinterest for some ideas that were different.
I managed to come up with this all on my own...
How about buttons for the snowballs falling from the sky?
or maybe he is being attacked with snowballs?  *wink
I stamped and colored him, then made a mask and fussy cut and put it over the colored image so I could use distress ink to sponge on the background.
Please go check out how the rest of the team was inspired to use buttons!
stamps:  Avery Elle: Be Jolly
distress inks:  tumbled glass, broken china, dusty concord
dies:  PTI button stacks
misc:  Marvy Snow Marker
