Kept Safe

The theme today at ABC Christmas Challenge is Kept Safe, so I've had to dig down to the bottom of my Christmas stash box to find something long forgotten!

I did find a few things that I've not used for a while, and amongst them was a small bag of resin holly leaves that I have had for years. Unfortunately I had ripped off the top of the bag which presumably had the manufacturer's name on it, so I can't tell you who makes them, but I think they are 'Dress it Up' buttons.

I've kept the card quite C&S (this is C&S for me anyway), but couldn't resist adding a big red bow held on by one of my favourite pearl brads.  Unfortunately I didn't have the right shade of red card for the matting layers, so I used white and coloured them with R05 Copic to get a lovely bright red for the die cut border for the green spotty panel, and also for behind the image, edged with green ink pad.
